The Potato Soup Crawl is back

Staff Report

RIVER FALLS – The rule is, in River Falls, everyone is Irish for the day on March 17. Festivities this year include the return of the potato soup crawl and a fun, new leprechaun hunt. Find Lucky the Leprechaun at participating businesses starting on March 1; 50 leprechauns will be hidden at local businesses across town (not limited to downtown businesses). Find at least 30 and you can enter to win $500, $300, or $200 in local gift cards. Each gift card is valued at $25 or more. The leprechauns will have a number on them and businesses will have cards for you to write down where you find the leprechauns. Return the filled out cards on March 17 to Terry McKay – Re/max Synergy office. Participants can share or post where they find leprechauns, but are asked not to share what number is at each location. The purpose of the activity is to get folks out into the community to explore local businesses.

Soup Crawl

From 1-6 p.m. Thursday, March 17, local businesses will offer their best homemade potato soups for sampling during the River Falls St. Patrick’s Day Potato Soup Crawl.
