Chicago’s South Side Irish St. Patrick’s Day Parade Organizers Reveal Details on Big Return 2022 – NBC Chicago

Chicago’s South Side Irish St. Patrick’s Day Parade will return this March after being canceled over the past two years due to coronavirus concerns, organizers said.

The historic parade, which began in 1979, will parade through Chicago’s Beverly and Morgan Park neighborhoods from noon on March 13, according to a report in the Chicago Sun-Times.

The parade organizers told the Sun-Times that the protesters will travel a mile starting on 103rd Street and Western Avenue, then along Western Avenue to 115th Street.

In a Facebook post on Wednesday, the organizers wrote #TraditionMarchesOn, which received over 100 reactions.

More details are expected on Thursday.

Last year, the South Side Irish St. Patrick’s Day Parade failed to conduct its traditional march down Western Avenue as COVID cases continued across the city.

Due to public health concerns, Chicago officials did not issue permits for parades or large gatherings in the first quarter of 2021.

Although there was no parade on last St. Patrick’s Day, Ireland’s South Side organization found a new way to celebrate the holiday.

Shamrock Our Blocks, a home decorating competition organized by the organization, encourages Chicago’s South Side to dress houses, light poles and cars in St. Patrick’s Day green.

In 2020, both of Chicago’s St. Patrick’s Day parades were canceled and the city’s famous river coloring was postponed due to coronavirus concerns.
