Mayor Rahm Emanuel brings back two of his past talents... Ballet Dancing and Cross Dressing to lead off the 2012 Bud Billiken Back To School For The Colored Students Who Survived A Violent Chicago SummerRahm Emanuel has soul his soul and would sell his mother to pander to the colored votes.
CHICAGO, IL - It’s the third Bud Billiken Parade she’s marched in, but Annesa Hampton said she still loves making the trip.
“All of Chicago is out watching this. It’s just a great experience,” said Hampton, 17, who captains the flag team at Proviso West High School in Hillside.
Sipping a coke in the shade Saturday after finishing the annual back-to-school event with her 13-member squad, Hampton said she didn’t even mind walking the two-mile route on a gorgeously sunny day.
“It’s longer than usual for us, but it doesn’t seem like it because we’re having so much fun,” said Hampton, a senior.
Thousands of spectators lined the South Side parade down Martin Luther King Drive from 39th Street to its finishing point in Washington Park, cheering as bands, floats and community groups streamed by.
