Photo Gallery: Naperville St. Patrick’s Day Parade 3/9/2024

-

The West Suburban Irish hosted the Naperville St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Saturday, March 9, 2024. The family-friendly event enjoyed by all ages celebrates Irish heritage and culture. The annual parade began at Naperville North High School and proceeded through downtown Naperville.

WSI Past President Mike Reilly and his daughter Megan provided commentary to help showcase the community spirit throughout the parade with more than 90 colorful entries.

A variety of tartan plaids were visible from head to kilt. And, yes, you could hear bagpipes! 

First up, however, the Rotary Club of Naperville Sunrise hosted its annual St. Paddy’s Day 5K, a fun run/walk, at 8AM, also in downtown Naperville.

Below is a small sampling of photos that reflect the day when family and friends frolic as they’re thinking green in advance of St. Patrick’s Day, March 17. Remember! Winner of the Trip to Ireland will be drawn at 6 PM Quigley’s Irish Pub on St. Patrick’s Day. (Tickets are $10 or 3 for $20. Winner need not to be present.)

Thanks to all parade participants for support of the West Suburban Irish!

Looking ahead…

 

West Suburban Irish Sham Rocker Fundraiser is planned from 4 to 9PM Sun., April 14, at Quigley’s Irish Pub, 43 E. Jefferson Avenue.

Save the date for the Naperville Irish FEST set to return to Central Park on September 20-21.
