Austin Weekly News' award-winning Photographer David Pierini with Display Advertising Coordinator Alicia Plomin

The Austin Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with the 15th District Chicago Police Department, held their 9th Annual Holiday Parade and Tree Lighting Celebration on Thursday, December 5, 2013. The parade kicked off at 6pm at Madison and Cicero in Chicago and ended at the 15th District Police Station at 5700 W. Madison. 

This year’s theme was “A Season of Unity,” and fittingly so, since residents, entrepreneurs and even politicians came together to show their support of Chicago’s West Side. Event sponsors included many local and corporate businesses, several of which were represented in the parade, such as Austin Weekly News.
