HAMMOND, Ind. (March 23, 2022) – The Bishop Noll Marching Warriors felt lucky this March as they prepared for their fifth appearance in the South Side Irish St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Sunday, March 13.
This Chicago tradition attracts more than 200,000 parade watchers, and organizers selected “Thankful for Catholic Elementary School Teachers” as the Grand Marshal for 2022.
“It is truly a parade of the neighborhood and hard working Southside families that we see along the parade route,” said Rocco Carioto, BNI band director. “It is just great to get out again and do these things. It makes you appreciate what you do and when you can do it when you don’t get to do these great events.”
The Marching Warriors also recently received word that they have been invited to march and compete in the 2022 Outback Bowl in Tampa, Florida.
