Porch Parade Details
As an alternative to the traditional 4th of July parade, Northbrook residents and businesses were invited to create their own "floats" by decorating their porch, house, front yard, or front window! Follow the interactive parade route map to see the locations of your choice, drive safely, and enjoy! Download a printable map here.
Winners in four categories were selected by ’celebrity judges’ and received gift cards to local restaurants.
Displays were up throughout the day, but community members were encouraged to travel the parade route from 2-4pm - when they could find special giveaways! Volunteers at Village Hall passed out reusable bags, mini flags and 3D glasses, and "Northbrook Strong" bumper stickers and window signs, while supplies last.
Decoration Rules & Regulations
Get to know our five Northbrook ’celebrity judges!’ Each judge was asked (1) What do you love about the 4th of July? (2) What are you looking for in a ‘Porch Parade winner’? and (3) What’s on your ideal BBQ plate?
