Independence Day Parade

The 2023 theme is “Together We Shine.” The community is what makes our parade so special, with representation from organizations all throughout Des Plaines. This beloved tradition includes community floats, live music and strolling entertainment. The parade is a great way to enjoy the holiday with neighbors and is fun for the whole family. We are eager to celebrate with you all! Learn more at desplaines.org/july4.
