LaGrange Pet Parade

June 3, 9:30 am - 10:30 am


The La Grange Pet Parade began in 1947 by the La Grange Chamber of Commerce, whose president was Ed Breen of Breen’s Cleaners, intending to bring the community together around the idea of a pet and child costume contest parading down the main street of the village. The parade grew to include entries from local schools, businesses and non-profit groups, but was still always planned by local business people. Throughout the 1970’s into the 1990’s, the WGN Television Network televised the parade. Since then, LTTV has filmed and broadcast the event on local access cable.

The parade walks through downtown La Grange stepping off at 9:30am and is a route of approximately 1.5 miles. Along the parade route, there are four (4) street announcing stations. This annual tradition is one of the most talked about parades of Chicagoland. It draws tens of thousands of people to the area. The Pet Parade provides fun and entertainment for the entire family!
