Watch St. Patrick’s Day Parade on NCTV17

NCTV17 is excited to share a variety of community events with our viewers at home or on the go!

This Saturday, thousands of residents will head to downtown Naperville and show off their Irish pride for the 21st annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade, sponsored by the West Suburban Irish.

Anchored by Kevin Dolan and Dolly McCarthy, NCTV17 will capture all the green and shamrocks and re-air the parade in its entirety beginning at 7 p.m. Saturday.

This year’s grand marshal is West Suburban Irish’s own Mike Reilly.

In addition to celebrating the Irish, March is a month to recognize the music programs in schools.

Metea Valley High School participated in the National Association for Music Education’s Music in our Schools month with four concerts. NCTV17 was there on Thursday with Metea’s most advanced ensembles, and will rebroadcast the concert starting at 7 p.m. Sunday.

NCTV17 is excited to share these events on channel 17 (Comcast and WOW!), channel 99 (AT&T UVerse) and online at

By covering these events, NCTV17 is not only adding programming, but sharing residents’ hard work and talents with the entire community.

Stay tuned for more events coming later this month, such as the Indian Prairie Educational Foundation’s 25th anniversary concert and the Men’s Glee Club Spring Invitational Showcase. For a daily schedule, visit
