Date: Saturday April 7, 2012
Why: Beginning of the Chicago Spring
How do I get there? Occupiers will meet at 10 am in front of Bank of America, corner of Washington and Van Buren, Naperville,IL.
At 10:10am…instead of marching in downtown Naperville, we will march to the Naperville train station and board the train at 10:33 am bound for Chicago’s Union Station.
We will be occupying the last (open) train car.
From Union Station we will march down to LaSalle and Jackson to meet up with our fellow Occupiers. This is the beginning of the Chicago Spring.
Ticket pricing below. Remember tickets cannot be bought at the station on Saturday. You can buy one way tickets on the train.
One way $5.75 or weekend pass $7.00 (tickets sold at station week days between 5:30 AM-1:10PM)

You can make a difference too, and we’d love to have you there!
Call to action – Occupy Naperville St. Patrick’s Day Parade! Occupy Naperville will march in the Naperville St. Patrick’s Day Parade at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 17th. This will be many people’s first exposure to Occupy, so it is very important to get large numbers out! The parade starts at Naperville North High School and proceeds downtown. Please arrive at Naperville North between 8:30 and 9:30 a.m. to line up for the start. Non-perishable food items will be collected by parade organizers for Loaves and Fishes. Further details, such as our place in the line-up will be available on or around March 1st.
UPDATE: We are #71 in the parade, just behind Dick Furstenau and before Title Boxing Club! We will assemble at Naperville North High School (Ogden and Mill) between 8:30 and 9:30. Parking is limited so please carpool if you can. We will make signs at the GA after the march on March 10. Some sign making supplies will be available, but please bring some if you like. Or make a sign on your own and bring it to the parade.
UPDATE: Here is the parking and route map. Please note there is no parade parking is allowed in the Stadium Lot. Use the North Lot only, enter via Mill St. and carpool if you can!
