Looking at the radar before driving to Marengo, it didn’t look good for marchers and specatators for Maengo’s Settlers Days Parade.
The number who ventured out were fewer, but still substantial.
One woman who has attended the parade for at least fifteen years could not remember another rainy day.
The Marine Corps provided the colors.
Paul Fritz was the Grand Marshal.
Marengo Mayor John Koziol was walkinf in rain.
Union village President rode behind in a pickup truck.
There were plenty of fire trucks, thankfully not making as much noise as possible.
What makes the Marengo parade the best in McHenry County are the numerous bands, which compete at the high school after the parade.
