About this Article

Lombard's Lilac Parade on Sunday took spectators on a trip through the past. The theme of the 59th annual Lilac Parade was "Nostalgia from the '60s, '70s and '80s." Many of the organizations marching in the parade reflected that theme. The local VFW Post, for example, carried signs that listed "Movies Of Our Time" ("Apocalypse Now") and "Songs of Our Time" ("Age of Aquarius").
