There was no organized parade for the second year, but Crosslake still celebrated St. Patrick's Day on Friday and Saturday, March 12-13, when the chamber hosted Crosslake St. Patrick's Day Shenanigans.

Events included the Yardi Pardi business and residential decorating contest and the Lucky Leprechaun Amazing Race.

More than a dozen businesses decorated their buildings' exteriors, with Lake Country Crafts & Cones winning the most enthusiastic award. Three residences signed up for the contest, with Les and Kat Mahowald's home taking top honors.

Hundreds of people participated in the Lucky Leprechaun Amazing Race, which was created to give businesses an economic boost. Participants downloaded an app and traveled around the Crosslake area to locate businesses and landmarks, complete missions and earn points.
