49th Annual Houby Day Parade
Cermak Road from Cicero to Berywn

12:00 Noon - 2:00 PM

One of the largest, longest, and most lavish parades in the Chicago area, the Houby Day Parade pays homage to the Czechoslovakian culture (Houby is the Czech work for mushroom) which was rich in the Berwyn Cicero area when it was originally settled.

The 2017 parade kicks off at 12:00 Noon in Berywn at Riverside Dr. and runs East ending in Cicero at 56th Ct. (1 block west of central Ave.).  Come to parade where you can have a chance to see and touch Scottie as we pass by.  Have your camera ready to shoot and we'll even stop for a quick photo.

Pictured above from the 2011 Houby Day Parade with the Houby Day Queen, Scottie is brought to the parade by the Town of Cicero.  So your best chance to have us stop for you is east of Lombard Ave in the Town of Cicero where we will be walking a slower pace.
