Guaranteed Rate, one of the ten largest retail mortgage lenders in the nation, will celebrate its Chicago roots by participating in the 60th anniversary edition of the Chicago St. Patrick’s Day Parade this coming Saturday, March 14. The parade steps off from the corner of Balbo and Columbus near Grant Park at noon and will proceed north on Columbus to Monroe. The official viewing stand is located in front of Buckingham Fountain. Several hundred thousand spectators are expected to be on hand, and the parade’s special guests of honor are the members of the Chicago Fire Department and Chicago Police Department.
A group of more than 200 Guaranteed Rate employees, family members and first responders is expected to march in the parade or ride in two decorated Guaranteed Rate trolleys. The group will be Unit #90 in the parade lineup, marching alongside local dignitaries, celebrities, and community leaders.
For those attending the parade in person, the use of public transportation is recommended. In the Chicago area, the parade will be broadcast live on WLS-TV, Channel 7.
