The Irish Marching Society annual St. Patrick's Day Parade will step off at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 16th, 2013.
This year, the end of the parade route will be different from past years. The parade will form at 7th Street & 4th Avenue, proceed north on 7th to State, west to Main St. and then SOUTH to Green St., where the parade will disband. Street closures will begin one hour before the parade and smaller streets that intersect the route will also be closed during that time period.
Police will allow drivers to cross on 2nd, 3rd, 6th and 7th and Wyman Streets periodically, but traffic is urged to find alternate routes.
For detailed information regarding the parade please contact parade organizer Stan Goral at 815-713-9612.
For specific street closure information, you may contact Kelly Nokes, Assistant Operations Manager at 815-967-6915.
