Hopefully Mother Nature will stop with the deep freeze and let us enjoy some St. Patrick’s Day fun!

There are a few things going on this month you might want to check out –

Downtown Plainfield’s Hometown Irish Parade is next Sunday, March 10th at 1pm, rain or shine with plenty of family fun from music to bounce houses and face painting to food trucks.

Naperville will have their Annual West Side Irish Parade on Saturday, March 16th through downtown at 10am.

On St. Patrick’s Day morning, Sunday, March 17th; AMITA Health in Bolingbrook will have their ½ Marathon and 5K St. Paddy’s Run AND it will have its healthy benefits!  You can Run with a Doc.  Now think about it, if you twist an ankle, or worse….you have your own personal physician right there with you!.  Faster than an ambulance!  Look for my good friend, Dr. Helena Keag – she’s a speedy one!
