From the Emmetsburg Reporter/Democrat: The highlight of the celebration for many, however, was the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The much-anticipated event was sponsored by the St. Pat’s Association and organized by Dave VanOosbree, parade chairman. VanOosbree returns to his duties of parade chairman after serving in that capacity from 1989 to 1993. “Of course, the Brian Boru bagpipers are my favorite,” VanOosbree noted.
