The St. Patrick’s Parade, hosted annually in Downtown St. Charles, has become a family tradition. Thousands of people of all ages line Main Street to watch the antics of cheerful leprechauns, listen to award-winning local marching bands, watch the elaborate and colorful floats glide down the street, pay tribute to the walking units of veterans, hear the melodic strains of the Celtic pipe bands, and see all the best that St. Charles has to offer.
The parade steps off on Saturday, March 10 at 2:00pm on the corner of Main (North Avenue/Hwy 64) and 6th Street. The route continues down Main Street and concludes at 4th Avenue.
Volunteers Needed on Saturday, March 10 include:
You can help run the show as a Parade Pacer. Pacers work in cooperation with the St. Charles Police Department to clear the parade route. Pacers are also needed to keep parade entries equally spaced and make sure the banner carriers stay with their entry. You must be at least 18 years of age.
Our banner carriers lead the parade up Main Street, advertising our sponsors and participants to spectators. Each banner requires two carriers, so you can match up with a friend or we can pair you with another volunteer. Banners will be distributed at the top of the parade route (near the corner of 5th and Main) and collected by a specific person at the end of the route. You must be at least 14 years of age.
Assist in line up are prior to the parade and direct parade entries to their space. You must be at least 16 years of age.
We need a variety of extra helpers who will provide an array of tasks at the St. Patrick’s Parade, from helping with the Dog Costume Contest, judging, or general cleanup.
