Join us for the
2014 Crystal Lake Independence Day Parade
Sunday, July 6th ~ 1:00 pm
Dusk at Main Beach
The Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce is again partnering with the Crystal Lake Lions Club, the City of Crystal Lake, and the Northwest Herald to present the 2014 parade. Special thanks to our event sponsors, Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital, Centegra Health System and Home State Bank. The parade follows its historical 1.8 mile route beginning at City Hall, proceeding down Dole Avenue and ending at the Lakeside Festival grounds. Richard Harms was named the 2013 Grand Marshal for the Independence Day Parade. Be sure to keep a look out for our next Grand Marshall!
The parade continues on with many favorite entries returning including the Crystal Lake Strikers, the South Shore Drill Team and the Sinful Saints who have been entertaining thousands of parade attendees throughout Illinois. The internationally known Jesse White Tumbling Team has been thrilling audiences since 1959 and will again appear in Crystal Lake this year. In addition, many officials from Crystal Lake and McHenry County will greet the crowd as well as past Grand Marshals and Miss Crystal Lake 2014.
