Yesterday we looked behind the scenes at political parade participants lining up.
Today we’ll look at what was seen.
City officials were riding on a float near the beginning.
Unfortunately, I was too close to get the whole float.
A car from the McHenry County Sheriff’s Department was in the parade.
The deputy waved this year.
U.S. Senator Mark Kirk’s contingent was the first overtly political contingent.
As he did five years ago, Kirk wore a baseball cap–this time for the USS Illinois.
A “tracker” from one of Kirk’s Democratic Party opponents was videoing Kirk in the Crystal Lake 4th of July Parade.
