South Side Irish Parade

The city's southernmost Irish celebration returns with another liquor-less procession along Western Avenue between 103rd and 115th street. In recent years, the event has attempted to shed its boisterous reputation, increasing the fine for open container violations so that families can safely enjoy the floats, bagpipes and marching bands.
