This year's theme:


Looking forward to the 2015 Parade!

With CROYA set to serve as Parade Marshal and a musically inspired parade theme, the 2015 Lake Bluff Fourth of July Parade promises to be a rockin' good time. The Parade is truly a community effort, with dozens of local volunteers and the donations of area businesses and residents keeping the parade afloat year after year. Please consider giving to the Parade today (simply click on the donation button to the left).
