Local Florist Pat Gustaff stopped by the Main Street Cafe Friday morning to visit with Chad about this year's St. Patrick's parade through downtown Sioux Falls.

The festivities kick-off Saturday morning at 11:45 with the painting of the Shamrock.  And then at 2 pm the parade officially begins.

Pat talked about everything from the special design of this year's button, to how he's been practicing his parade wave.

A host of other events are also planned throughout the afternoon and evening hours
