Over 75 groups will be participating in this year’s parade, including businesses, civic organizations, students, veterans and more.  The parade starts at Barrington High School, heads east on Main Street and ends at the Barrington 4th Festival grounds at the north Metra commuter lot downtown.
The parade committee’s marketing director, Kristin Leese, says they chose to add the words “Homegrown in Barrington” to put the focus back on Barrington……
