Senator Andy Manar

Join State Senator Andy Manar at the Illinois State Fair Twilight Parade on Thursday, August 10. Volunteers should arrive by 5:00 PM and assemble with entry #8 which is just north of the pavilion in Lincoln Park. The parade kicks off promptly at 5:30 PM. 

Senator Manar will be joined by Illinois AFL-CIO-endorsed candidate for governor JB Pritzker for the parade and he is hoping to have many supporters walking with him.

The regular parade route has changed this year. It will step-off from the southeast corner of the Nelson Park loop, located in Lincoln Park on Springfield's north end. From there, the parade will travel north to Sangamon Avenue. It will then trek east down Sangamon Avenue and turn left into the Main Gate of the fairgrounds. The parade then will follow Main Street through the fairgrounds to Grandstand Avenue before concluding at the north end of the Grandstand. A map of the parade route is attached. Please contact Chris Shallow at 312-505-9087 for more information.
