LANSING, Ill. (May 7, 2022) – After a week filled with gloomy weather, the sun smiled upon the 53rd Good Neighbor Day Parade on Saturday afternoon, which filled Ridge Road and Burnham Avenue with elaborate floats, lawn chairs, candy, and hundreds of good-neighborly smiles.
This year’s theme was “Salute to Sports.” The parade — which occurs on the first Saturday in May each year — is organized by the Lansing Area Chamber of Commerce. This year’s route was the same as last year’s, which started near Ridge and Wentworth, travelled west to Burnham, and south to TF South.
