Lake Forest day Sesquicentennial Parade the best ever: 20-photo Picture Gallery

August 13, 2011

As a Lake Bluffer, there was no way I was going to miss the Lake Forest Day Parade whose theme honored the Sesquicentennial anniversary of the founding of Lake Forest in 1861: “Time to Celebrate Lake Forest’s Sesquicentennial”.

Congratulations to the Lake Forest American Legion Post 264 for taking the reigns since 1921 in organizing what has become a much anticipated annual event in Lake Forest, Lake Forest Day, now celebrating its 103rd year.

As in past years Lake Forest Day, always celebrated on the first Wednesday in August, fell this year on August 3rd.

Through my photo gallery a narrative about Lake Forest Day will unfold. My photos represent a good cross section of the 104 entries in the 2011 Sesquicentennial Lake Forest Day Parade.

Congratulation, Lake Forest, as you continue to celebrate your 150th anniversary year in a grand style.
