This weekend I had the pleasure of joining a group of my friends
for the annual Lombard Lilac Parade. (Lombard is known as the Lilac
Village and the parade concludes the annual two-week festival.) The
parade is a wonderful community event, and takes place near
NUHS. There were many local organizations, businesses,
schools, and volunteers that participated in the
parade. During the parade, participants came into the crowd
and surprised us with face painting. I left the parade with stripes
on my face, which brought many laughs.
I went to the parade with my son. We joined one of my very
best friends, family and a group of friends. I have included
pictures of some of my friends and parade watchers to show what a
great community event the parade creates.

After the parade, many residents have parties and cookouts
celebrating the day's festivities. I have included pictures of my
friends and the party I attended.
