CHICAGO — The city’s Labor Day Parade returns Saturday in East Side.
This weekend marks the return of the long-running parade, which has not been held since 2019 due to the pandemic. It’ll kick off noon Saturday at 104th Street and Ewing Avenue, according to a news release.
The popular parade will feature dozens of floats celebrating Chicago’s unions and labor history. Paradegoers will head to Eggers Grove, which has an entrance at 112th Street and South Avenue E. There, attendees can celebrate Eddie Fest with live music, family activities and food.
Eddie Fest is named after Edward “Oilcan” Sadlowski, a union leader, labor activist and father of Ald. Susan Sadlowski Garza (10th).
