This year's theme:


Only 3 Months Until the Lake Bluff 4th of July Parade!

With only three months remaining until the Lake Bluff 4th of July Parade, activities are already in full swing to make this year’s parade a huge success. Most bands and performance acts have already signed on to participate, with entertaining, new entries from outside the area.

The annual parade mailing is scheduled to arrive in the first week of April. This mailing outlines how you can support the parade through a donation, sponsorship of a band or by placing an ad in the Parade Book.
