CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The Czech Village in Cedar Rapids celebrated St. Joseph's Day with a parade.

The parade kicked off Saturday afternoon with many wearing red to be Czech for the day.

This year the parade took a new route starting in New Bohemia, going down 3rd Street and ending in Czech Village.

Some restaurants in Czech Village served Czech food and drinks including red beer.

St. Joseph's Day is typically celebrated on March 19, like a Czech St. Patrick's Day.
