Parade marches forth

Cloudy skies and a couple of sprinkles actually were a welcome relief to marchers in the annual Hinsdale Independence Day parade July 4. From the starting point at Eighth and Garfield to the finish at Sixth and Grant, hundreds if not thousands of people lined the streets. Charlotte Atkinson was on Garfield waving to participants as they marched by. Maddie and Leah Rudolph dodged a few sprinkles early during the parade. (Jim Slonoff photos)
