Thousands of parade-goers came out to celebrate a Barrington 4th of July during the community’s annual Independence Day parade down Main Street on Saturday.  Many who marched in this  year’s parade dressed in costume to represent the theme for 2015 which was “Barrington Through the Decades – A Sesquicentennial Celebration”.

To capture the spirit of Barrington’s 150th birthday, all entrants chose a particular decade to represent during the parade (1880’s, 1950’s, etc.). Judges chose three parade winners for 2015.

Tudor Oaks Farm’s horse and buggy owned by Richard Stephenson took home the “Village President’s Award”, the “Spirit of Barrington” award went to the Barrington 220 School District for their display of “hometown dedication, ingenuity and community pride” and Noah’s Ark Christian Academy preschool won for “Best Overall Entry”.

These three winning parade entries may have this year’s bragging rights, but we’re taking a look back at this year’s parade in photos and by category!  There’s no better way to relive the parade than by viewing the parade images photographed by Bob and Anne Lee.  Here’s a look at the Veterans * Characters in Costume * Stars, Stripes and Spectators * Banners of Barrington and Horses, Horses, Horses!
