Push, Pull, and Pedal People's Parade - 2012

Elgin's Annual Push, Pull, and Pedal People's Parade will be held on Wednesday, July 4th in downtown Elgin. Dress up in your patriotic finest and ride your bike (or trike!), push a stroller, pull a wagon, rollerskate, ride a horse, skateboard, or simply walk in the Parade.

Parade line-up begins at 9:30am at City Hall, and the Parade starts at 10am. The Parade route begins at City Hall, continues down Main Street, ending at Veterans' Memorial Park.

At 11am, there will be a short patriotic program honoring our soldiers in Veterans' Memorial Park. Then, from 12-1pm, the Elgin Boy Scouts Packs 182 and 471 will host the Cub Scout Mobile Races, similar to a soap box derby. The race will be held on the hill on Ave. C next to Veterans' Memorial Park.

In the evening, Southside Market & BBQ, located at 1212 Hwy 290 East in Elgin, will host a fireworks display in their parking lot. Bring a lawn chair, and enjoy the show! The fireworks will begin after dark.
