Glencoe loves its 4th of July parades, and this year was no different. 

Families and friends began lining up along the parade route long before the event started, while neighbors gathered, catching up each other’s lives as they waited for the parade to begin.

The Sampson family staked out a spot near the corner of Park and Vernon avenues.

“I love Glencoe,” Michelle Sampson said. “It reminds of the Windsor [England] country, village lifestyle. Everyone is so friendly.”
