Walk with other Democrats from Kane and McHenry

On Saturday, July 22nd at 11:00 a.m., Founders’ Days are hosting their 59th annual parade as part of the Founders’ Days celebration. The goal of the parade is to show off the best of the best and celebrate how the Algonquin and surrounding communities are shaped by those who are a part of it — from its social organizations to its businesses; from its local leaders to its Fire, Police, and other village entities.

More details:

What to Wear: Dress for the weather, but please wear your Dundee Dems t-shirt if you have one. If you are not wearing a Candidate’s tee shirt, please wear seasonal attire in honor of the day.

Please bring candidate signs. The parade’s theme is A Circus so wear your best clown outfit.

Candy: please bring bags of wrapped hard candy. No water guns!

Line up for the parade will begin at 9 AM. Walkers usually include statewide candidates and McHenry County and Kane County candidates.
