We are proud to announce the 2022 Columbus Day Parade
Saluting Angelo & Romana Caputo
Thanks for your patience! We received the 70th Annual Columbus Day Parade information late this morning and wish to share with everyone and anyone who would like to march the route with us on Monday.
- We're gathering - beginning at 11:30am - on Wacker Drive, just EAST of State Street
- Please be in position before Noon
- Our GOP Float is #64 (line up on Wacker Drive, EAST of State Street, in the middle lane, NOT at the curbs)
- Bailey Firetruck is #64A
- We'll march between the GOP Float and the Bailey Firetruck
- Please gather on Wacker Drive between 11:30 & Noon on Monday.
- Dress appropriately, temps should be in the low 60's. You can wear the regalia of Republican candidates who are currently in the race in Illinois, specifically: State-wides, County-wides, local races. Nothing from the past (or future or other states), please.
- If driving, we suggest you park near the end of the parade (Van Buren), as the float will NOT be able to bring you back to the Wacker Drive area. Of course, you can grab an Uber, Lyft or a taxi, as CTA will be re-routed for a while.
