Diversions - The South Side Irish Parade on Sunday

Kicking off at Noon on Sunday, March 9, at 103rd and Western is the 30th annual South Side Irish Parade and all its related festivities. PLEASE NOTE that this date is one week earlier than usual due to the fact that Sunday, March 16, 2008 is Palm Sunday.

The Wikipedia entry here. This is worth a look just to read the lyrics to the Chicago South Side Irish Song.

Oh, and be careful. The Chicago Police Department says they will be arresting anyone drinking in public and that the fine is $500. This I have to see! In the photo above, that's $4,000!
