Preparing for the Parade

If you’re planning to attend the parade, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, remember to check the weather forecast and dress accordingly.

Second, be sure to arrive early to secure a good viewing spot. The parade is a popular event and can get crowded. My favorite spot for viewing the parade is the grassy space in front of Stone Avenue Station on Burlington Avenue. From here you’ll be able to listen to the announcements from the master of ceremonies and you’ll have access to shade if its a hot sunny day.

If you decide to sit along La Grange road between Burlington Avenue and Cossitt avenue consider the sun and find a shady spot to stay cool.

Lastly, don’t forget your camera! The parade is a visual feast, with pets in costumes and lots of fun activities. You’ll want to capture the memories.

Continue the Celebration

After the Parade consider attending the La Grange Summer Carnival hosted by the La Grange Area Business Association. This year’s Carnival will be located on Harris Avenue between Le Grange Road and Ashland Ave. The carnival will be open on June 1st from 12:00pm to 10:00pm. Drinks and food will also be available at the carnival. For more information visit the La Grange Business Assocation Summer Carnival page.
