Countryside is holding its 3rd annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade on March 10th, 2018. The parade route extends the mile between 61st St/Kensington and 55th Pl/Edgewood. Proceeds from this year’s parade will benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation–Illinois Chapter and the local Boy Scouts of America. Prizes will be awarded to the best floats and banners.
Local residents of all ages will be watching and marching in the parade, making it a great opportunity to advertise your business. Handing out promotional materials alongside a festive decorated float is the perfect way to get noticed and interact with the community.
