The parade will step off at 11 a.m. at Archer and Nordica, travel east on Archer to 55th Street, then continue east to Merrimac, then turn south and end at Wentworth Park.
The annual event is hosted by U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-3rd) and 23rd Ward Alderman Michael R. Zalewski.
The parade will feature entries from local businesses, fire departments, police departments, Scout troops, civic organizations and marching bands.
At the parade's end, the fun will continue costume judging, free hot dogs, refreshments and treats.
Any organization interested in participating in this year’s
Pumpkin Jamboree Parade should contact Frank Salerno at Lipinski’s office at (773) 948-6223.
