Dust off your green pants and leprechaun hats!  The 19th Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade is here.  This weekend, Saturday March 7th on the east and west sides of Spring Road, come out and take part in the legendary festivities.
Think the Elmhurst St. Patrick's Day Parade is just like the rest? Think again!

Most town parades don’t feature an “Armpit Orchestra.”  The Elmhurst Armpit Orchestra was inspired by comedian Bill Murray in the movie Stripes, and founded by a local group in 2009. 

THE EAO brings some variety and humor to the parade with an army of 50 men playing kazoos, cowbells, wash-boards, bucket drums, and more zany musical instruments not found in your typical parade band. The group hopes to someday be graced by the presence of Bill Murray himself to lead the band.  Could this year be the year? You’ll have to attend to find out!

The second largest St. Patricks Day in the Chicagoland area, the parade kicks off at the intersection of Wilson and Spring Roads at noon on Saturday. Join the Elmhurst community for fun, food, music, entertainment, and celebration of all things Irish.
