Representative Jan Schakowsky (D-Evanston) still participated in Skokie’s 4th of July parade–limping rather than marching in the village’s annual Independence Day event.

Lang had torn a leg muscle and Schakowsky had broken her ankle during a tour of the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The parade began on Oakton Street at the Oakton Community College parking lot, heading east from Downtown Skokie to Oakton Park.
