Pancakes, Parades and Patriotism


Join the fun at the 2016 Northbrook 4th of July celebration, a long-standing tradition that builds memories and brings the community together. The Village of Northbrook and Northbrook Park District are working together to plan a full day of holiday activities and invite you to become involved. Celebrate our nation’s birthday with your friends and neighbors!

Baseball is an American institution, and the 2016 parade will honor 50 years of baseball excellence in Northbrook. Leading the parade will be players from the 1966 baseball team at Glenbrook North High School, who won the state championship—the first for the school.

2016 Sponsors
The Park District thanks the Northbrook residents, businesses and civic organizations that support the holiday celebration.
