St. Patrick's Day Celebration 2024

In a long-standing tradition spanning 21 years, GES and onPeak once again brought their vibrant spirit to the streets of Chicago, this time with a meaningful twist. This year, their participation in the annual parade wasn't just about revelry and green attire; it was a powerful statement advocating for mental health awareness. 

With a float adorned with symbols and messages aimed at dismantling the stigma surrounding mental health, GES and onPeak made a powerful statement as they marched through the streets, spreading their message of support and solidarity.

Following the parade, the celebration continued at Buddy Guy's Legends, where attendees were treated to an unforgettable experience. But the celebration didn't end with the parade. The festivities continued at Buddy Guy's Legends, where a lively party awaited attendees. Guests were treated to an array of performances, including the Lavin-Cassidy Irish Dancers, the Shannon Rovers Irish Pipe Band, and the Gleeson Trio Band.

Amidst the festivities, food, and laughter, there was a strong sense of community. There was plenty of food and entertainment available, offering a variety of delicious options from Harrington's Corned Beef Sandwiches to a Chicago favorite - Lou Malnatis Pizza! There was also a photo booth that provided the perfect opportunity to capture cherished memories of the day. A lively trivia game added an element of friendly competition, further enhancing the celebratory experience.

Upstairs, the festivities carried on at the Leprechaun Lounge, where young attendees could participate in lots of activities. From the candy bar to fashioning bracelets and creating balloon sculptures, there was an assortment of entertainment for all.

As a cherished memento of the occasion, each guest had the opportunity to take home exclusive GES & onPeak St. Patrick's Day scarves, along with traditional Irish soda bread and a commemorative GES & onPeak pint glass, ensuring cherished memories lingered long after the festivities ended.

However, amidst the festivites, the core message remained front and center: mental health matters. By seamlessly integrating this crucial theme into the fabric of St. Patrick's Day celebrations, GES and onPeak reaffirmed their unwavering commitment to raising awareness, fostering understanding, and providing support for those grappling with mental health challenges.

GES & onPeak want to thank our wonderful clients and their families for making this day so memorable and the amazing sponsors this year: CNTV, CORT, Floral Exhibits, Flyover Chicago, Kushner & Associates, and Destination Toronto!
