Family Parade – tentative plan
The parade will be moved to Central Avenue (151st to 157th). The parade is a great way to promote your business to 1000’s of potential customers and show your community spirit! Walk, drive or create a float! Parade registration is free for families, community groups and current Chamber members. Parade information will be shared in January. We will continue to monitor our ability to host this and share details as soon as we can.
Shamrock Shuttle *new this year
There will be a shuttle running from 2-6p. The Shamrock Shuttle will be making scheduled stops at our activity locations and sponsoring pubs/restaurants.
Lucky the Leprechaun Family Events *new this year
We are looking for businesses to host family friendly events on Fleadh day. Oak Forest Park District & the Acorn Public Library have already agreed to host some fun activities. Please let me know if you are interested, and we can together, to create a fun event.
This is our biggest event. It cannot continue without our generous sponsors. Several sponsorship levels are available. The fleadh shirt is like having 365 day a year advertising! Last year we gave away 600 shirts. Deadline to have your logo on our shirt is January 31st.
