East Moline Mexican Independence Day Parade and Fiesta have been cancelled


After careful consideration, the 2020 LULAC 5285 Parade/Fiesta scheduled for Sunday, September 13, 2020 has been cancelled due to COVID-19 State of Illinois guidelines. While it was a difficult decision, it is one made to ensure the safety of our community. 


This would have been the 12th annual parade/fiesta held during Hispanic Heritage month celebrations in the Quad Cities.  

The LULAC Scholarship recipients for the 2020-21 Academic Year have been awarded and students will be notified by email within the next few weeks.  A total of 36 students will receive a scholarship.  Funds raised in 2019 made this possible with the parade/fiesta providing the largest portion of scholarship funds.


Please Save the Date for Sunday; September 19, 2021 and join us!

LULAC 5285 in partnership with Midwest Ale Works in East Moline will host a scholarship fundraiser on Sunday; August 2nd 2020.   The beer tasting will be from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
