My love for the parade started when my mother would start dancing at the sound of the drums as they came down the street.
"The Bud Billiken® Parade and Picnic was begun by Chicago Defender’s newspaper founder, Robert S. Abbott, in 1929 as a way for him to show his appreciation to the newspaper’s paper boys. Always held on the second Saturday of August, it has developed into one the City’s premier Back-to-School event." - Chicago Tourism website
