The Naperville St. Patrick’s Day Parade Saturday, March 11th 2017
OUR UNIT IS #59
Start Location: Naperville North High School, 899 N. Mill Street, Naperville
End Location: Naperville City Hall, Water Street
The Parade will start at 10AM, and should be completed by noon. We ask all participants to arrive between 9:00-9:15AM. (The parking lot opens at 8:30 and there is limited parking).
Mandatory attire for all Weber students is as follows:
o Black pants
o Either green long sleeved Weber Logo T or sweatshirt
OR white or black “Weber Irish Dance” T-Shirt over a white or black sweatshirt, respectively
o Comfortable walking shoes—DO NOT WEAR YOUR DANCING SHOES!!
March parades are always a little unpredictable, when it comes to weather. If it is cold, please remember to bring your hat, scarf, and gloves so that we can have a warm, enjoyable parade! Each dancer must be accompanied by an adult chaperone throughout the parade. The chaperones will be marching behind the dancers and are not required to wear the students’ mandatory attire, although Weber Pride is always appreciated.
