Update: Veterans Group Will March in St. Patrick’s Day Parade

FARGO, N.D. – Organizers of the Fargo-Moorhead St. Patrick’s Day Parade clear up a misunderstanding on whether or not veterans are allowed to march.

Veterans’ groups will be able to march in this year’s parade and carry the colors of our country.

The Fargo-Moorhead United Patriotic Bodies originally planned to skip the parade after they felt it was unfair they had to pay a participation fee to promote patriotism.

However, organizers say this fee will be refunded for all service groups in the parade.

“We had an organization donate to cover the cost of entry for any veterans’ groups moving forward, so we’d be happy to have them if they want to take part,” Katelin Madsen with Fargo Downtown Community Partnership said.

The Downtown Community Partnership is still looking for volunteers to help clear Main Avenue of snow ahead of Saturday’s parade.
