The 4th of July inspired us to start something new here at 365Barrington.com.  We share many photos in all seasons on this website, but thought it would be fun to create occasional 365 Barrington Community Photo Albums with your help.

For our very first Community Photo Album, we asked you to share your favorite photos from along the 4th of July parade route in Barrington.  Readers shared dozens of pictures, stories and tips about the best spots for parade watching in Barrington for our album.

One of the sweetest photos of all of our contributions was this picture of a little girl named Evelyn Dowling submitted by her grandmother, Sue Bullen. Evelyn’s father, Austin Dowling, could not join her at Barrington’s parade this year because he’s deployed in Afghanistan. Instead, she brought her “Daddy Doll” so he could be right there, all snuggly by her side, if only in spirit.

Thank you for sharing your special photo, Sue. And thanks to all of you who shared images along with tips about your favorite spots for parade watching. Before we share the full photo album, here’s a snapshot of those hot spots on Main Street for watching Barrington’s 4th of July Parade, according to our readers…

“In front of B. Chones. Best location, because you see all 4 corners of main st and 59, where so many years of friendships gravitate too.”
– Joannie Petrungaro

“Corner of Main and Cook”
– Noel Schumann

“We have always watched the parade just down from St. Annes where we park. It’s a great spot with some trees for shade!”
– Sue Bullen

“Either at St. Paul Church or in front of JB Enterprises where there are lots of family and good friends.”
– Jessica Kuiper

“Sitting on Cook and Main by the flags! It feels like the epicenter of town!”
– Angela Abbatemarco

“Veteran’s Plaza. Presenting the colors and the middle of the parade”
– Anne Schmitt

“On the lawn at the corner of Dundee and Lake Cook. The parade was just starting and there was lots of candy!”
– Faye Haber

 “In front of the flower shop – we always get a good spot there!”
– Vibeke Harwood

As for our family, we like to try new spots each year.  We live near the corner of Hough & Main Streets but found a spot at Main & Dundee Avenue this year.  Our kids, ages 2, 3 & 4, had a blast.

Without further delay, here is our very first 365 Barrington Community Photo Album, followed by a slideshow of the parade, as photographed by Barrington’s very talented community photographer, Bob Lee. Thanks for sharing your personal images from our 2013 July 4th Parade!

For a look at the many floats and participants in this year’s 4th of July Parade, Barrington is so fortunate that photographer, Bob Lee, calls our community home.  He was there to capture the entire parade on camera, as he does every year. Bob took hundreds of photos during this year’s parade and here are some of our many favorites.
