Only 6 days until the 4th of July, and Evanston Escola de Samba’s 4th of July Spectacular! Our percussionists, dancers, friends, and volunteers have been working especially hard this year, and the result is going to be amazing. Here are the final details of the parade:

What: Evanston Escola de Samba’s 4th of July Spectacular
The parade marches east from Central Park Avenue East on Central Street in Evanston to Ashland Avenue. More info on the parade route here.
When: The parade starts at 2PM (if you are participating in the parade you have an earlier call time)
