We experienced another successful showing of St. Jude drivers and MICC drivers for the West Peoria Parade on July 4, 2016. 15 Corvettes participated and most were decorated with red, white, and blue. The Corvettes lined up at Kartsville this year and had plenty of room.
We drove up Swords Hill to join in the festivities. There was lots of candy for parade spectators and kids. It is the comments we will long remember as we drove past – “God bless you and the St. Jude Drive.”, “Thanks for St. Jude.”, and “Thank you for helping St. Jude.”
We regrouped after the parade to have a quick meal at the 50’s diner then we were on our way to other holiday celebrations.
Thanks to all drivers, passengers and four grandchildren for participating and helping celebrate our country’s freedom on July 4, 2016.
