About Bud Billiken Parade and Picnic

The Bud Billiken Parade and Picnic is a yearly procession held since 1929 in Chicago, Illinois, United States; it is the biggest African-American motorcade in the country. Held every year on the second Saturday in August, The procession course goes through the Bronzeville and Washington Park neighborhoods on the city's south side. Robert S. Abbott, the organizer and distributer of the Chicago Defender, made the anecdotal character of Bud Billiken, which he included in a section in his paper. David Kellum, fellow benefactor of the Bud Billiken Club and long-lasting motorcade organizer proposed the procession as a festival of African-American life.

Since its starting, the procession has included famous people, legislators, agents, urban associations and youth. It is viewed as the second biggest procession in the United States, whose emphasis is on commending youth, instruction and African-American life. The motorcade is additionally refered to as the "class kickoff" festivity, denoting the finish of summer get-away and continuing of school for Chicago's childhood. Bud Billiken is an anecdotal character made in 1923 by Abbott, who had been thinking about adding an adolescent segment to the Chicago Defender daily paper. While at the same time feasting at a Chinese eatery he saw a Billiken. A portion of the early Billiken sections were composed by Willard Motley, who later turned into a noticeable author.
