Free! Reverse Parade at Community Park West
Sunday, July 4, Noon

We will be hosting a “reverse” parade starting at noon on July 4. Residents are encouraged to decorate their vehicles and drive through the park to see the floats and become part of the parade!

You will need to reserve a ticket for the parade, but tickets are free. Tickets are one per car indicating the reserved time you will drive through the parade.  Please print and display tickets on your dashboard.

Glenbrook South’s radio station will be playing patriotic tunes throughout the event, so make sure to tune in to 88.5 as part of your parade experience.
At the start of the parade, there will be a drop off location for food donations to the Northfield Township food pantry. Please bring canned goods or a donation to help our neighbors in need.
