I am from Delaware. I am the mother of 2 20 somethings. My daughter graduated from Loyola last year but I never got to a St Patricks day . So The universe came together . Originally, we thought I would go to Naperville Friday night. We just started Looking into this and saw scheduling issues. If u have 2 rooms for Friday night they might be interested in staying too. But, the plan is to see the river turn green, go to the parade. Following that, we will be going to the parade and then checking into the room we already booked. Hope that helps. Thanks! I fly out Sunday.
