Lemont looking for new St. Patrick’s Day Queen
The village of Lemont is accepting nominations for this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Queen.
Every year, a nominee is crowned queen for the day and invited to participate in Lemont’s St. Patrick’s Day activities.
The contest is open to Lemont residents -- preferably of Irish heritage. Nominees must be in their junior year of high school through second year of college. All candidates must be actively involved and dedicated to the growth and improvement of Lemont, enrolled in school activities or community organizations, and an overall hard worker.
The nominee chosen will be crowned Queen of Lemont’s 26th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade on March 4. The winner will lead the parade in a horse-drawn carriage. The event begins at 1 p.m.
Other festivities include The Chicago Stockyard Kilty Band and Hughes Academy of Irish Dance. Free refreshments follow the activities. The parade is open to the public.
For more information, contact Donna at 630-243-2700.
Lemont is governed by Mayor Brian Reaves, Village Clerk Charlene Smollen and an elected board of trustees.
