First Annual Village St. Patrick’s Day Parade

The Village of Montgomery will be hosting its First Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade on March 23, 2013. 

The parade will commence at 2:00 p.m. (1 pm lineup) in the Rolling Meadows Development.   The Parade Route is as follows:  Sycamore Drive to Senior Street to Union Street to Clinton Street to Bridge Street to Veterans’ Memorial Park.

There will be other events scheduled prior to the parade, such as:

  • 5K Race 8:00 a.m. (registration 7:00 a.m.)
  • Mass at St. Mary’s Church
  • Easter Egg Hunt,
  • Grand Marshal Patrick Kelleher luncheon  at noon at St. Mary’s Hall
  • Children’s fun race.  

Most village restaurants will be offering dinner and entertainment specials that evening, and other businesses will have special sales.   The Grand Marshal Kickoff Party is Friday March 15th 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. at the Village Senior Center.

The Parade Committee has had four meetings already and is going full force to make the first event quite successful.  Thanks to Paul Satkowski, Trevor Owens, Marc Devitt, and other volunteers who were able to raise $2,300 from the golf outing.  That money will pay for additional police coverage the day of the parade.  Other fundraising events are being planned to fully subsidize the parade. 

The parade will be sized based upon the funds raised. For Information regarding the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Festivities, call the Village Office at 457-9661 (Ronnie at ext. 203 or Tina at ext. 201)
