4th of July Parade


The parade route starts at Loyola Boulevard beginning at Westchester Park and travels north to Loyala Marymount University.

This is the first time St. Mark will have a presence in the parade and we want to make it a memorable moment. Each participant has been asked to embody the theme of “Cities Across America”, St. Mark will represent Honolulu, Hawaii…bringing the Aloha spirit to life through our ukulele program, our Little Mermaid production and a myriad of hula girls and surfers.

All children and adults are invited and encouraged to participate in this fantastic parade.
