A very big thank you to all the St. Patrick’s Day parade participants, Sponsors, Mayor Thomas McDermott, the City of Hammond, Highland VEEPs, Hammond EMA, Sponsors, North Township Trustee Frank Mrvan, and our volunteers we couldn’t have done this without your support and help!

HC3 would like to recognize Donald J Kalina Jr.  Don is the man behind the scenes that makes the parades possible in our city. He coordinates all the roadblocks, police, EMA’s, Veeps and sets up the parade lineup with his team. Thank you, Don, for all you do! We appreciate your help with our St. Patrick’s Day Parade and everything else you do throughout the city!

HC3 would like to thank 6th District councilman Scott Rakos in working with others to ensure the train will not run through the St. Patrick’s Day Parade! Kudos to all that made this happen!

Thank you, everyone, for embracing this new tradition see you next year! You can also check out all the photos and videos of the parade at HC3 Facebook page. Feel free to share your memores with the community! Also, check out GOHammond and WJOB for live coverage. Thank you, Tony Panek and John Vezmar for coming out and recording the parade.
