Participants, volunteers, sponsors sought for July 4th Parade

Participants, volunteers and sponsors are being sought for the annual July 4th Parade. June 5 is the deadline to register to be in the parade, which typically attracts more than 75 groups each year.

Local organizations and businesses are invited to bring a float, march, play music, carry balloons or banners, ride decorated bicycles, skate, drive vintage cars or just dress up to commemorate the nation’s birthday and to celebrate Oak Park’s rich diversity.

A registration form is available at Village Hall, 123 Madison St., via email to and via a link on the Village website at

The Community Relations Commission, which organizes the parade, also needs volunteers on the morning of July 4 to help monitor traffic crossings along the parade route. Sponsorship opportunities are available for businesses and organizations interested in helping support this year’s parade with money, goods or services.

Call 708.358.5407 or email for more information.
