Summer Celebration Parade



The Village of Streamwood held its Annual Summer Celebration July 25, 26 and 27. This year’s theme was “roar” to highlight all the wonderful accomplishments of the Village and community members.  This was the 20th anniversary for this event which features food, music, a carnival, and an afternoon parade.  The various parade entries are judged and awards given.  For the third year in a row, the Poplar Creek Public Library has the honor of being awarded the Best Theme Float designation.
