Posted:

Eau Claire (WQOW) - Billed as Eau Claire's shortestsidewalk parade, community members marched in an early Saint Patrick's Daycelebration. WHYS Community Radio held its 8th annual Saint Patrick's Daycelebration Sunday in downtown. More than 70 people walked roughly two blocksto the Acoustic Cafe to finish off the parade with a silent auction.

BenJohnson, the underwriting director at WHYS Community Radio, said, "When we firststarted it, there hadn't been a parade to honor Irish heritage. So we decidedthis would be a good event to bring that awareness to the community and alsobring awareness about our radio station at the same time.

Sunday's event broughtin roughly $1,500. Some of that will help offset operating costs at theall-volunteer, community radio station.
