Children and their decorated bikes should be at the parade lineup at 8:30 a.m. at the Hinsdale South High School parking lot. The parade will proceed north on Clarendon Hills Road, west on Plainfield Road, then west on 75th Street to Eisenhower Junior High.

After the parade, the Darien Historical Society will serve ice cream and lemonade outside the Old Lace School, 75th Street and Cass Avenue.
