We could not of asked for a better day for Lombard's annual Lilac parade. It's really a big deal for all us Lombardians, the entire village comes out to line the 2 1/2 mile parade route on Main Street. People stake out their spots as early as Friday night with balnkets or folding chairs. The parade is the finale of the 16 day Lilac fest as we are the lilac village.
Our soldiers received a standing ovation
