Barrington’s 2012 Fourth of July parade will have to go down as one of the hottest on record. But that didn’t keep thousands from turning out in support of the people and the causes this community cares most about. The committee that puts on the parade deserves high praise and major props for pulling off another great event. To highlight their efforts, we put together a short photo gallery of some of this year’s people on parade, starting with the float that won this year’s Grand Prize for the “entry that best exhibited creativity, appearance and patriotism”. And that award goes to…

Barrington’s Fourth of July Parade Committee has already updated their website (BarringtonParade.com) and Facebook page with photos from this week’s parade.  And Heinen’s Fine Foods has produced one of the best video recaps of the parade and their grocery cart dancing brigade.  They had some seriously smooth moves in our high heat and I can’t wait to see them dancing down the aisles once the new store opens in Barrington next month on August 22nd ;)!

And here are some of Barrington photographer, Susan McConnell’s favorite parade images from this year. With her studio right on Main Street, she has a birds-eye view of the parade each year and says that, even in extreme heat, she loves how this Main Street tradition truly captures the spirit of Barrington.
