The 4th on 53rd Parade, Picnic, and Concert Series is a 28 year old Hyde Park tradition. A parade where “everybody marches,” it’s truly an event by the community, for the community, attracting over 5000 marchers and attendees from across the South Side. Putting on the parade is no small feat, and as Hyde Park has changed in recent years and finances have gotten tighter for everyone, finding money for floats, infrastructure, and entertainment has become increasingly challenging. We’d very much appreciate if you could consider making a financial contribution to the parade—any amount helps.
