Update from the Committee

Patriotic Parades to Pop-Up in Lake Bluff on the 4th of July

The 110th Annual Lake Bluff Parade was canceled in April, but ever since the parade committee has been planning alternative ways to celebrate our community and country on the 4th of July.

This year, the parade committee will bring the parade to you. Two pop-up parades, which will include a parade marshal, a few decorated vehicles and two (smaller) bands, will caravan through the neighborhoods of Lake Bluff on July 4th. The parades will step-off at 10:00am.

Lake Bluff 4th of July Committee's Statement on Canceling the Parade

"This cancellation is disappointing to all of us, but it is the socially responsible thing to do,” said Al Trefts, president of the Lake Bluff 4th of July Committee.

“The Village of Lake Bluff turns 125 in 2020 and there are plans to celebrate all year long. The Lake Bluff 4th of July Committee picked a parade theme that honors the village’s past, celebrates its present and looks toward its future. “To tie into the liberty theme, the League of Women Voters Lake Forest/Lake Bluff Area was selected by the committee as the parade marshal,” said Al Trefts, president of the Lake Bluff 4th of July Committee

The League of Women Voters was formed in Chicago, Ill., on February 14, 1920, in anticipation of the ratification of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote in the United States. For 100 years, the League of Women Voters has embodied the spirit of liberty by empowering voters and defending democracy.
