Evanston Virtual 4th of July Parade

Hits : 119

REMINDER:  Virtual Parade!

The Windy City Miata Club has proudly driven a contingent in the Evanston 4th of July Parade every year for as far back as some of us can remember.  Sadly, Evanston has canceled this year’s parade due to the Covicd-19 pandemic. 

While we will sorely miss participating in what has become known as one of the best small-town parades in America, the club will instead celebrate via a virtual Independence Day parade.  Auto Zone gift cards will be awarded for the best decorated Miata and two runners-up.  Participation is easy; you just have to get in the Independence Day spirit a tad early.  Here’s what you do:

  1. Decorate your Miata appropriately for Independence Day.
  2. Take one or more photos of the car.  If you decorate multiple Miatas, please photograph each car individually.
  3. Email your photos to us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by no later than June 29.

Contest winners will be announced and the virtual parade will be posted to the Galleries section of the club website by July 4th.

We hope next year to be able to drive in a non-virtual July 4th parade.  But for now, we hope YOU will join this year’s virtual parade!
