The village of Lake Villa hosts its annual St. Patrick's Day Parade on Saturday, March 15, at noon. Lineup begins at 10:30 a.m. at Palombi Middle School, 133 McKinley Ave. Due to snow, the route has changed slightly from previous years. The parade will leave Palombi and travel on McKinley Avenue toward Grand Avenue, turn left on Burnett Avenue, right on Sherwood Avenue, left on Grand Avenue, right on Cedar Avenue and end on Railroad Avenue near the Lake Villa VFW.
