March with GPAD in Palatine's St. Patrick's Day Parade on March 16!!!!!!

Greater Palatine Area Democrats is proud to be a sponsor of the Durty St. Patrick's Day Parade! Join Greater Palatine Area Democrats as we walk in Palatine's St. Pat's parade on Saturday, March 16!! We need loads of folks to carry banners and walk with us. In past years we had a river of Democrats walking--let's do that again!

On Parade Day, March 16, line up begins at 10 a.m. The staging area is on Oak Street in front of Gray Sanborn School, 101 N Oak Street, Palatine. The parade kicks off at 11 a.m. and ends at Wood and Smith streets at Durty Nellies. The parade takes about 45 minutes to walk. 

We will have coffee and green doughnuts at the staging area. Dress for the weather!

Free parking is available in the parking deck at 210 N. Smith Street in Palatine (behind Durty Nellies), at the Metra parking spots on Smith south of the Metra tracks, or at the Aquatic Center parking, 340 E. Palatine Road. Street parking is discouraged. 

Candidates and Elected Officials: This year, parade organizers are requiring all political organizations and candidates who want to carry a banner or signs to pay a parade entry fee of $200. (If purchased by Feb. 1, the fee is $150 with the discount code DEMS24.) Greater Palatine Area Democrats knows that our electeds and candidates are busy. We have purchased FOUR parade entries for Democratic candidates who want to march with us and proudly carry their candidates' banner. If you would like one of these entry slots, please contact Maria Galo at [email protected] or call her cell at 847 507 7043. We only ask that you reimburse us the $150 for the entry fee. We will let the organizers know you are marching with us, and you will be included in the list of participants.

If our four extra slots are used up, Candidates and Electeds can register for the parade at
