Memorial Day Parade in Norwood Park

Scenes from today's Norwood Park Memorial Day Parade.

There's probably a story behind how the Rosemont Police came to provide the honor guard for this Chicago neighborhood parade... but I don't know it.

And what's a parade without bands? Here's the Lincoln Park High School Band.

The band stopped to salute the Eshoo home.

This is the band from Kelvyn Park High School.

Taft High School was represented by its Junior Naval Officers Reserve Officers Training Corps.

And it wouldn't be a Memorial Day Parade without plenty of Scout groups.

These are Cub Scouts from Immaculate Conception Grade School, but every neighborhood school was represented.

This was a float offered by the Girl Scout group from the Presbyterian Church of Norwood Park.

These are the Girl Scouts from Immaculate Conception Parish.

And then came the antique cars. Lots and lots of cars.

And an odd thing on Memorial Day in Chicago: The weather was both warm and dry. Of course, rain was forecast....
