All are invited to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in River Falls on Sunday, March 17 from 1—7 p.m. Participants are invited to don green apparel and come downtown for some fun and games.

The celebration begins at 1 p.m. with the "Pot-of-Gold" medallion hunt. Clues will be posted in Veterans park every hour until the medallion has been found. The prize is $50 in Chamber Checks.

Between 1 and 5 p.m. event-goers can join in the Potato Soup Crawl and sample savory soups from participating businesses. Participants can vote on their favorites, and enter to win $75 worth of prizes.

People can also participate in the Pub Poker Walk. Those interested can get a card at any participating location and draw a playing card from each business to try and form the best poker hand. The person with the best poker hand will win a prize. The winner will be announced following the Bed Races.

This year's Bed Races will start at 6 p.m. Teams will race handmade beds down Main Street, completing challenges along the way. Anyone interested in competing can visit to register and for more information.
