Le Grange, Illinois

The Pet Parade in La Grange, Ill., which takes place on Route 20, has been putting paws on the pavement since 1946. Categories for participants (from the official registration form) include:

• Dogs & Pals: “You and your dog walking!”

• Pets & Pals: “You and your pet that is not a dog or a stuffed animal or just come in costume!”

• Pals on Wheels: “All of our friends on wheels! Bring your bikes, skateboards, scooters or rollerblades!”

The parade clearly welcomes diversity – a nice reflection on Route 20 itself in this part of the state, where the road is also known as La Grange Road, Mannheim Road, Highway 12, and Route 45.

This girl must be in her mid- 20s by now. Surely she’s performing on stage, wherever she is.
