Plainfield Hometown Irish Parade this Sunday

Adrian Holman

The Plainfield Hometown Irish Parade will begin staging at 10 AM CST on Sunday, March 13. With St. Patrick's Day being on a Thursday, mostly all of the St. Paddy's Day parades around the country will be this weekend. Fortunately, that gives you an extra day to party.

The parade will begin staging at 10 AM at Plainfield Central High School. Please remember that this time of 10 will be after the clock is set ahead for Daylight Savings Time Sunday morning. I do not want you to pull into the high school parking lot wondering why everyone is leaving. The parade actually starts at 1 PM.

The parade will start at the corner of Commercial and James Street. The parade route will go north on James to Lockport St (Illinois Route 126). The route will then go east on Lockport Street to Illinois Street. The parade route will then go south back to Commercial Street. Finally, the parade will go west on Commercial Street and will end where it started. In summary, the parade will go around the block in downtown Plainfield.

The parade will take about an hour and a half because there are about 59 different participants in this extravaganza. This parade will be jam-packed with decorated floats, school bands playing music, groups of people playing bagpipes, jugglers, and BMX bikers doing street tricks.

The party really starts after the parade because there are a slew of bars and restaurants on Lockport Street. Four places that I recommend are Uptown, Moe Joe's, HopScotch & Vine, and Opera House Steak & Seafood.
