In 1981 a plethora of ethnic and cultural events took place in neighborhoods parks, and in downtown Chicago. The list was vast and I made it my mission to cover as many of the cultural offerings and parades throughout the year. The Bud Billiken Day Parade is the largest Black parade held on the second Saturday in August since 1929. Onlookers cheer their family and friends on floats and in marching bands. Take a moment to immerse yourself in the sounds and sights of this amazing display energy and joy. Do you see you family and friends? If so please contact me, thank you!
