OTTUMWA, Iowa — The Ottumwa Chamber of Commerce is putting on a St. Patrick’s Day parade this year. It will take place along Church Street downtown.
KTVO spoke with Shea Greiner, Executive Director of the Ottumwa Chamber of Commerce, about why they are hosting this parade.
“I’m just trying to bring a family fun event to Ottumwa. So, we’re not really doing anything in the spring, we’re getting a little bit of spring fever. I’m really trying to promote the commerce of Ottumwa or businesses once the parade is over we’ll do special events or special sales to get the people that have come to the parade into their businesses,” Greiner said.
Greiner told KTVO that she’s currently looking for parade entries.
