37th Annual Eddie Biondo Fall Fest Parade

poniedziałek, września 22, 2014

Join us as we celebrate the amazing spirit and vision that created the Park District of Franklin Park 50 years ago! Gather your friends, family and neighbors to see colorful floats, marching bands, local Franklin Park schools, horses, antique cars, clowns, local businesses and civic organizations showcasing the heart of Franklin Park. The parade marches from the intersection of Grand Avenue and Scott Street, heads east on Grand, then north on 25th Avenue (Rose Street) and ends at North Park. This year we will host a float contest before the parade step off, and winners will win great prizes! So come out and join in the fun. Afterwards we head to the annual Pumpkin Fest at North Park, 10040 Addison. Contact the Park District at 847-455-2852 if you would like a parade float entry form. * Line-up location: Scott Street and Grand Avenue

The fun does not stop after the Eddie Biondo Fall Fest Parade. Continue celebrating at North Park with Pumpkin Fest! Here, you will find loads and loads of bright orange pumpkins just waiting to be painted and taken home! The afternoon is filled with family fun, including music, games and great food! Watch for more information in your local paper, or call the Park District at 847-455-2852. * Pumpkin Fest begins immediately following the Parade.

Sunday, October 5

Parade is from 1:00 - 2:00 p.m.
