    Elgin Fourth of July Parade registration deadline is June 20
    Elgin, IL - Registration for the City of Elgin's Fourth of July Parade is right around the corner. Businesses or organizations interested in participating in the 2018 parade must register at cityofelgin.org/july4 by Wednesday, June 20 at 5 p.m. Registration fees apply.

    In conjunction with the Gail Borden Public Library's exhibit, Extreme Deep: Mission to the Abyss, this year's parade theme is "Ride the Wave." Participants are encouraged to decorate floats with a fun, water theme and/or wear costumes of a nautical nature.   
    The parade begins Wednesday, July 4 at 9:00 a.m. at the intersection of Slade and Douglas Avenues and continues south on Douglas through the heart of downtown Elgin, ending at Highland Avenue.

    Keeping with the nautical theme, this year's parade grand marshals are the active and retired servicemen and servicewomen of the United States Navy.
