Home of the Largest St. Patrick's Parade

The small town of Rush Center promoted itself for a time as "Home of the Largest St. Patrick's Parade." Now they cautiously refer to the parade as "one of the largest." The 2-mile long procession of bands, floats and other vehicles happens once a year on a Saturday near the holiday.

Rush Center itself is only a few hundred people, and seems depleted of businesses. But there's still enough energy for the annual "wearin' o' the green."
