Trinity High School has been selected to participate in the 63rd annual Plumber’s Local 130 St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Saturday, March 17th in downtown Chicago (the parade route kicks off at Columbus Drive and Balbo Drive and proceeds along Columbus Drive to Monroe Street). Through the generosity of a benefactor, Trinity High School will be sponsoring a float and current students and alumnae will march in the parade alongside the float, spreading Trinity spirit and cheer.
In gratitude for representing Trinity High School along the parade route, students riding the bus from Trinity and marching in the parade will receive a FREE Kelly green specially designed St. Patrick’s Day long sleeve t-shirt- the Centennial Edition!
St. Patrick’s Day Parade Important Info
Trinity High School will be chartering buses for students to ride from Trinity High School to and from the official parade bus parking lot. Students wishing to march in the parade MUST gather at Trinity NO LATER than 10 am on Saturday, March 17th to be transported as a group to the parade holding station.
