Chicago has one of the largest Greek-American communities. The annual Greek parade is a major event that brings pride and joy to the participants and the thousands that attend every year.  On Sunday May 1st, over one-hundred officials and constituents of the Federation of Hellenic-American Organizations of Illinois “Enosis” – the parade organizing body – attended the event. The Greek parade took place in Greektown, on Halsted between Randolph and Van Buren Streets. Prominent members of the local Greek community and city officials cheered with the crowd. The Greek-American students and youth who came out to attend the event added to the feeling and fervor.
