St. Patricks day is Thursday and that’s enough of a reason for a parade.  The annual Twin Falls St. Patricks Day Parade will start at noon in the 600 block of Main Ave. South and travel west past Shoshone St. and end up at Dierkes Street North.  Motorists should be aware that Shoshone St. will be closed to traffic through the intersection of Main St. from 11:30 until 1 p.m. and the 100 block of Main St. at O’Dunken’s will be closed for a good part of the day for St. Patricks Day festivities.  For those attending the parade, the TF Police Department asks that you park at least two blocks away from the parade route.  Parents, please hold on to your children to keep them from running into the street while the parade passes.  And for parade participants, remember that throwing candy from the vehicle is not allowed.
