My, but this has been a fun-filled and action packed 4th of July weekend. I started off the day attending the Lake Bluff 4th of July parade, which has huge - was over 100 entries, for this tiny community. I wanted to attend some other parades, especially Mundelein's, but painting the deck got in the way. In any case, as usual, here are the pix:
Here's the parade kickoff.
There were several old fire engines.
Hot race cars and classics abounded.
I don't often feature Dems, but I will admit that State Senator Susan Garett had one of the best classic cars in the parade.
Keith Brin had a number of supporters at the Lake Bluff parade, and told me he was then on his way to the Deerfield parade.
I could only dream of affording one of these...
Bob Dold walked the parade, as usual, supported by a large contingent of supporters.
Some of these cars are just simply awesome.
A Civil War Regiment made an appearance.
In addition to the usual "Cheese" float, Caputo's added a Formula One racer.
Not yet a classic, but here is the Keith Brin-mobile.
