Update from the Committee

2021 Parade Planning Update

The Lake Bluff 4th of July Parade will look different this year—with an extended route (over a 3.5 mile route on the east side of the Village) to spread out the viewers in consideration of Village of Lake Bluff permit requirements and COVID-19 concerns.

Please refer to the instructions and map to the left for more specific information.

The parade will start at 10:00 a.m. at the Lake Bluff Middle School and finish in the same location approximately 70 minutes later.

If we’ve learned anything from the past year, it is that there needs to be flexability when planning these types of events. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram @LB4JulyParade for up-to-date information about the 111th Annual Lake Bluff Parade.

The Lake Bluff 4th of July Committee is pleased to announce “It Takes a Village” as its 2021 parade theme. This will be the 111th Annual Lake Bluff Parade, which celebrates both our local community and the country’s independence.

“The Covid-19 pandemic has changed our lives and challenged our community. But through it all, we have witnessed how resilient Lake Bluff can be,” said George Chemers, president of the Lake Bluff 4th of July Committee. “We’ve come together to help those in need; we’ve rallied for our front-line workers; we’ve embraced our local restaurants and businesses. We’ve truly demonstrated the power of community! And that is why the committee has selected "It Takes a Village" as this year’s theme.”
