GLJT Toys 4 Tots Parade - 250+ 4x4's taking over Chicago
Its that time of year again!
Time to take over Lake Shore Drive with Jeep's and 4x4's and deliver some much needed toys to help brighten a few children's Christmas!
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. This is a great time to meet some of the GLJT Members.
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 opportunities along the way, news crews, and GLJT members taking official video, so be sure to smile too!

This is a great event for a great cause!
If you haven't seen 250 4x4s on Lake Shore Drive in mass, you haven't seen anything!
Meet the other 4wd enthusiasts from the Chicagoland area, and bring a toy for needy children.
