Time Out says

It's the 90th edition of the world's largest and oldest African-American parade, which celebrates Chicago's youth just before the school year begins. Hundreds of thousands of attendees line the streets to see colorful floats, marching bands and talented dance and drill teams. The parade's two-mile route begins in the Bronzeville neighborhood and continues north on Dr. Martin Luther King Drive, concluding in Washington Park with a picnic that features vendors and performers.
