Tow truck parade to depart Sunday morning from Joliet

JOLIET – The ninth annual Worldwide Equipment Sales LLC Tow Trucks for Tots parade will take place Sunday, and will begin in Joliet, according to a news release about the event.

Tow trucks from all over the United States will begin lining up at 6 a.m. at the Hollywood Casino Joliet, 777 Hollywood Blvd.

The parade will leave the casino at 9 a.m., and, led by the Illinois State Police, it will travel west onto Route 6 to Interstate 55 to Harlem Avenue to Toyota Park, 7000 S. Harlem Ave., in Bridgeview.

Once the parade arrives, the trucks will be on display and festivities will be ongoing from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Toyota Park. They will include a live band, Tow Truck Olympics, food, prizes and more. Admission is free.

More than 500 trucks are expected, which will break the current Guinness world record for largest tow truck parade.

Tow Trucks for Tots is a nonprofit that collects toys for children at Christmastime. It is made up of mostly family owned towing companies.
