You can add the Chicago South Side Irish Parade to the list of cancelled festivals.

It was cancelled after last year's parade due to unruly crowds coming in from the suburbs, ruining it for the rest.

It is being replaced by a weeklong series of events.

May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.

Mike,

Thanks for adding this information. I'm adding the South Side Irish Parade Family Fest to the worldwide Celtic events schedule on my website and when more information concerning the week of events is put up on the South Side Irish Parade Committees website, I'll add those too.
