Registration is open!
Where and when will the parade happen?
Staging area is on Plymouth Ct, just north of Congress Expressway. It is located between Dearborn and State street with entrance from Congress Expressway.
Registration for the day's activities begins at 9:00 and will continue until just before the parade starts, at 11:00 AM sharp. Registration will have program booklets, T-shirts for sale and those pre-ordered but not already mailed.
The parade starts at 11:00 and WILL go rain or shine. We will march just a bit on Van Buren to get to Dearborn, proceed north on Dearborn to Daley Plaza, about five city blocks away. Check map on menu.
How to Register for the Parade
The link on the menu (Register Now) takes you to our registration site. Groups and individuals must register to participate in the parade. Registration either as a group or an individual is absolutely free. We use your registration information to place you and/or your group in order and to send you program booklets in July
To have a float/vehicle in the parade you must register your group of course AND you must use the sponsor portion of the registration site to identify and pay the $25.00 vehicle fee. Please see our registration site for explicit details.
If you plan to request a booth to offer handouts from your organization, you need to visit the registration site and carefully read the sponsorship information there.
