A sure sign that summer is almost here: the 97th Annual Norwood Park Memorial Day Parade. The parade began in 1922 and has grown to become one of the community’s favorite events. The annual parade is Monday, May 27, 2019.

Assembly Location is Onahan School, 6634 W Raven St, Chicago, IL 60631
Assembly Time is 10am. Parade step-off begins promptly at 11:00 am.

Tribute Ceremony will immediately follow the parade at Taft High School, 6545 W Hurlbut St, Chicago, IL 60631.

Route Map: Starts at Onahan School and continues west on Raven over Northwest Hwy and stops just past the railroad tracks to presents wreathes (Courtesy of Romance in Blooms) at the Centennial Park gardens on Avondale.  Parade then continues west past Norwood Crossing and turns south (left)  at East Circle then east (left) at Ardmore, right (south) at Natoma and finally left (east)  at Hurlbut to Taft High School.

At the end of the parade march, at 12pm, we will host a Tribute Ceremony at the Taft flagpole.  The American flag raising will start the event and the Taft Eagles Choir & Taft Drums & Bugle Corp. will perform a musical prelude. Our National anthem will again be performed by TBA– a prior recipient of a scholarship from the Norwood Park Chamber of Commerce.

The Memorial Day Committee welcomes 16th District Police Commander, (name here) the 41st ward Alderman, and Grand TBA.

Memorial Day Scholarship winners will also be announced at the end of the ceremony.

We would like to thank our premier sponsors for this year event:
