Call to action – Occupy Naperville St. Patrick’s Day Parade! Occupy Naperville will march in the Naperville St. Patrick’s Day Parade at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 17th. This will be many people’s first exposure to Occupy, so it is very important to get large numbers out! The parade starts at Naperville North High School and proceeds downtown. Please arrive at Naperville North between 8:30 and 9:30 a.m. to line up for the start. Non-perishable food items will be collected by parade organizers for Loaves and Fishes. Further details, such as our place in the line-up will be available on or around March 1st.
UPDATE: We are #71 in the parade, just behind Dick Furstenau and before Title Boxing Club! We will assemble at Naperville North High School (Ogden and Mill) between 8:30 and 9:30. Parking is limited so please carpool if you can. We will make signs at the GA after the march on March 10. Some sign making supplies will be available, but please bring some if you like. Or make a sign on your own and bring it to the parade.
UPDATE: Here is the parking and route map. Please note there is no parade parking is allowed in the Stadium Lot. Use the North Lot only, enter via Mill St. and carpool if you can!
