A new tradition in Uptown Blue Island, families and friends gather to cheer for bands, dancers, floats, dancing horses and much more, all decorated with festive holiday lights! The Parade is on Western Avenue from Union to Grove Streets and begins at 5:30pm. Bring the entire family!
Join us after the parade for the lighting of the Christmas tree at Uptown Park (York & Western) for refreshments and cookie sale. Visit the open houses at the Blue Island Public Library, Carr Gardens, Franklin Framing, and Flowers by Cathe, just to name a few.
Download and share the Christmas 2013 flyer with your friends and family. If you would like to submit an entry for the parade, complete the 2013 Parade Entry Form and return to Rita Pacyga at City Hall.
Presented by the City of Blue Island and MetroSouth Medical Center, we wish everyone a joyous holiday season and
a happy, prosperous new year.
