Irish Marching Society prepares for parade

Just a note to let you know that the annual St. Patrick’s Party and Parade will take place for the 37th year. The event is sponsored by the Irish Marching Society of Rockford and has become a staple for the beginning of spring.

The event this year, on March 12, will begin with the parade starting at 3 p.m. and follow the normal route through downtown Rockford. You can participate by checking our website irishmarchingsociety.com for all events and general information.

The party will again be held at the Brewhouse on North Madison St. beginning at 4:30 p.m. and includes four music stages with food and beverages available.

Tickets are available on our website for $7 per person with children under 14 free. Tickets at the door are $10.

The parade is sponsored and funded by the Irish Marching Society, a not-for-profit organization that needs the support of the community. Please go to our website to see how you can help. You can also contact Jerry Goral at 815-979-2163. The parade costs are approximately $3,500.
