Westchester On Parade!

If it’s July 4th, it’s Westchester parade day! And a beautiful day it was for a parade. The sun was out and the breeze was just enough to make the flags wave.

This year’s theme for the Westchester parade was “Our Little Piece of Paradise – Celebrating 75 Years of Westchester.” This year’s parade was also the kickoff event for a year long birthday celebration for Westchester.

The parade included 50+ community groups, floats, bands and other entries with three announcer booths at Manchester/Loyola, 83rd/Loyola and 80th/Loyola. Find the parade line-up here.

T-shirts featuring the parade logo and Westchester tote bags were available to purchase and continue to be available online at
