  • July 4th Parade Theme Announced

    “Building for the Future” is the 2018 theme of the annual July 4th Parade in Union Grove.  There can be many interpretations of the theme for float builders to consider – and a patriotic theme is always appropriate.  The floats are judged before the parade begins and ribbons and cash prizes awarded. 

        It is noted that 2018 is the 100th Anniversary of the historic building at the corner of Highway 11 and Highway 45 which was home to the Racine-Kenosha County Training School for Teachers and is now the Union Grove Municipal Center.  The building created the future for many beginning teachers.  The History Seekers of Union Grove will hold a cornerstone opening celebration in September.

  • New this Year Best Business Float Category!

    New this year is a Business Category in the July 4th float building competition.  The prize is yet to be determined, but the creators of the winning commercial float will have “bragging rights” and perhaps the first business name engraved on a Traveling Trophy.
