Joliet to hold police parade and festival May 13

JOLIET – The city will have a parade of police May 13.

The Salute to the Blue Parade and Festival to Honor Law Enforcement will be 1 to 5 p.m. downtown.

The event will begin with a parade on Chicago Street and continue with festivities at Slammers’ stadium.

Numerous law enforcement agencies already are participating, according to a news release from the City Center Partnership. They include police from Joliet, Channahon, Romeoville, Rockdale, Crest Hill, Wilmington, Will County and Kendall County.

Other agencies interested in participating can call the City Center Partnership at 815-774-6066.

The festival at the stadium will be free and family friendly, according to the news release. Food and beverages will be for sale. The Neverly Brothers rock band will perform.

“The Joliet Police Department does so much for our city, especially for the downtown city center,” Richard Fredrickson of the City Center Partnership stated in the news release. “We wanted to find a way to thank them and all law enforcement officers throughout the area, and also provide another big event in downtown Joliet with this parade and free concert.”

D’Arcy Buick GMC is a major sponsor of the event.
