83rd Bud Billiken Parade celebrates education, youth

Posted: Updated:

It was a little bit of everything - baton twirlers, marching bands, gymnasts, zebras and camels - for today's 83rd annual Bud Billiken Day Parade.

One of the oldest and largest African American parades in the U.S., the Bud Billiken Day Parade celebrates youth and education. The CTU even marched, shouting for fairness.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel even took time to shake hands along the parade route, saying today was all about the kids.
