The Village Preservation Association has lined up an extensive array of activities to keep the whole family entertained following the parade. Join the VPA in the heated tent adjacent to 24103 W Lockport Street, immediately following the parade. The tent will feature FREE face painting, balloon sculptures, coloring contest by age group, bag toss competition for kids, and more! In addition to the wonderful food options from our downtown restaurants, the tent will also offer options from local food trucks. And special entertainment will be provided by some of the featured bagpipe bands and Irish dance groups from the parade.
The VPA sponsors the family tent as an amenity to enhance families’ enjoyment of the parade. Attendees can support the VPA by purchasing a festive scarf and buying raffle tickets for a number of raffle baskets donated by generous area businesses. Stop by the family tent for these great ways to support the VPA’s efforts to host the annual Plainfield Hometown Irish Parade.
