State Street, Downtown Chicago
Parade Marches North from Ida B. Wells to Randolph
TIPS FOR VIEWING
- Our VIP Section for 2023 has sold out. Thank you to our individual sponsors!
- Find a spot near the Harold Washington Library to see our balloons do the “limbo” underneath the L tracks.
- The nicer the weather, the earlier your fellow spectators show up to the parade.
- The further south you go on the parade route (closer to Ida B. Wells), typically you will see smaller crowds.
