The Urban Black Renaissance organization will host a BIKE RIDE in partnership with Red Bike & Green - Chicago for the Englewood Back to School Parade...
The 52nd Annual Englewood Back to School Parade will be held August 23, 2014 at 10am. The procession will begin at 57th & Halsted and travel south to Marquette Road, turn west on Marquette Road to Throop Street, and proceed to travel north on Throop Street ending at Ogden Park located at 6500 S Racine Avenue. The parade will feature food, floats, music, and free book bags and school supplies for returning students. Admission and light refreshments for the parade are free.
The Englewood Back to School Parade was formed in 1963 by Willie Pittman to galvanize hope and to encourage the youth to stay in school and pursue education, thus developing the theme, “Education Is the Key to the Future.” This event has always been a jewel in the community which promoted a day of peace as well as pride. Please join us in revitalizing the Englewood Back to School parade.
Please bring your bicycles and come ready to ride!
