LAKE BLUFF, Ill. (WLS) -- Video from a 4th of July parade in north suburban Lake Bluff is sparking controversy.

Some people were offended by costumes worn by the Lawn Mower Precision Drill Team.

The group has been dressing up for years. Some of the costumes included Caitlyn Jenner, "50 shades of neigh" and a man depicting ISIS.

The village manager says they can't legally censor the group. The drill team says they are equal opportunity offenders.
