BLOOMINGTON — The Bloomington Labor Day Parade is returning.

Organizers on Friday announced the event would be held at 10 a.m. Monday, Sept. 6, starting at Front and Center streets in downtown Bloomington.

The parade, which dates to 1891, was canceled last year because of COVID. 

This year's theme is "Labor, Stronger than Ever" and will feature union marching units, the Illinois State University Big Red Marching Machine band, local high school bands, community organizations, construction equipment and elected officials.

The route follows Front, Lee and Wood streets to Miller Park. Information is at or through

The parade is sponsored by the Bloomington & Normal Trades & Labor Assembly, AFL-CIO, the central labor council for all area labor unions.  

The first part of the video drone series "Uniquely Illinois" looks at Abraham Lincoln's relationship to the land and people of the state.
