Please join the Village of Lincolnwood and American Legion Post #1226 for the annual Lincolnwood Memorial Day Parade. The parade will start at the corner of Cicero and Pratt Avenues at approximately 10:20 am, and then travel east on Pratt Avenue, turning north on Keeler Avenue, ending in Proesel Park at Madeleine’s Garden. Following the parade, a ceremony will take place in Madeleine’s Garden at approximately 11 am.
This year, the Village welcomes members of the Patriot Brass Ensemble, a non-profit musical group dedicated to supporting veterans. Their past performances include NBC’s The Voice, The Late Show with Steven Colbert, Grease Live, ESPN’s SportsNation, University of Miami Athletics, and many other large and small events.
