Philip Centennial kicks off with a St. Patrick's Day theme
Philip's Centennial Celebration got an early kick-off when combined with St. Patrick's Day. A sidewalk parade with entrants dressed in old-time apparel, as wel as St. Pat's green, was led by the Community Betterment Committee with their own rendition of "Happy Birthday, Philip."
In the hour-and-a-half long event, main street was closed off for the parade, as well as wheelbarrow races, Shamrock Quarter Drop and Golf Ball Push, as well as serving of brats, hot dogs and homemade mint green ice cream.
Everyone is invited to Philip's Centennial Celebration in June - 14 thru 17 - where many, many events, along with an All School Reunion, are being planned. For updates on the June celebration, log on to: www.philipsouthdakota.com.
