The Lombard Lilac Parade Committee would like you to thoroughly enjoy your Parade Day. The Committee, in cooperation with the Lombard Police Department, is asking you to be vigilant of any suspicious activities and notify a parade official or police officer staged along the parade route if you witness anything out of the ordinary.

The Lilac Parade is a rain or shine event.  It is not, however, a lightening, hail or tornado event.
