Rotary-HBA event LB Oct. 9 – Nov 7 2019

Flossmoor’s Fourth of July parade – a tradition since the 1930s – will be revived Saturday when lines of fire trucks traverse neighborhoods on both the east and west sides of the village.

In previous years, the parade has been an opportunity for kids, and their parents, to display patriotic spirit by decorating bikes and riding down Flossmoor Road. The COVID-19 pandemic has made that impossible in 2020 but residents will still be able to enjoy a parade on the nation’s birthday.

Two sets of fire vehicles will start the procession at 10 a . . .
