Fourth of July parade on Illinois Boulevard
The Village's annual Fourth of July parade is back on Illinois Boulevard for 2018! The parade will step off at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, July 4. This year's parade theme is "Wings of Freedom." The Village is pleased to announce that the 2018 parade marshal will be Dean Bostrom, the recently-retired director of the Hoffman Estates Park District.
The Village's Celebrations Commission will be out in force once again accepting donations for area food pantries, so be on the lookout for their float and shopping carts! Make sure to bring your nonperishable canned or boxed goods and/or paper products. Monetary donations will also be accepted.
And make sure you plan to join us after the parade for the Northwest Fourth-Fest carnival at the Sears Centre Arena, 5333 Prairie Stone Parkway. Carnival hours on the Fourth of July are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Free admission, easy free parking, and fun for the whole family!
