Move To Evergreen Park Unlikely For South Side Irish Parade

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Apr 3, 2009 4:20PM

Last weekend, Evergreen Park mayor James Sexton expressed interest in relocating the now-suspended South Side Irish Parade to his town. A week later, though, it appears as if the move isn't in the cards. Sexton says that response to the proposed move is split so there's not enough support: "Right now, it's about 50-50. That's not a mandate and probably not enough to move forward." Sexton added he'd wait a few more weeks and would continue to look into the cost of having the parade before making a final decision.
