Hello all! It's time again for the Great Lakes JeepThing all 4x4 Toys for Tots parade through Chicago!
McCormick Place parking lot "B". (Truck marshalling area, south McCormick, same as last year)
Line up begins at 8:30
Parade leaves at 10:00am!
From there we'll be going north up Lake Shore Drive to Foster. West on Foster to the Marines HQ for toy drop off, and then off to the GLJT/TFT/X-MAS party. We'll have food, drinks, prizes, and even have another set of 4 Bridgestone Dueler MT tires to raffle off!
The parade will be pretty slow going, and staging may take some time so be sure to dress for the weather. There will be plenty of photo ops along the way, news crews, and GLJT members taking official video, so be sure to smile too!
