On Saturday, March 9, the 23rd annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade will step off at 12 noon from Wilson St. & Spring Rd. heading north, ending at the railroad tracks just beyond Silverado Grill.

This year’s Grand Marshal will be Immaculate Conception Catholic Prep and its outstanding football team.

The Elmhurst St. Patrick’s Day parade is expected again this year to attract a large crowd here in our fair suburb. Ample parking, security and planning will make for comfortable viewing conditions for all family members.

The parade features floats, marching units and animated characters along with local organizations, businesses and clubs along a mile stretch. Don’t miss your chance to see more than 80 floats, Irish Dancers, the Shannon Rovers, local team mascots – Benny the Bull, Southpaw and Tommy Hawk. Chicago Highlanders, Medinah Clowns, Elmhurst Armpit Orchestra, featuring the world’s largest drum and the York High School Marching Band.

The parade is only the beginning to this festive day – for the food, music and fun is sure to continue as Elmhurst merchants, restaurateurs and friends welcome visitors for this special community celebration.
