The Village put together a helpful guide of all of the Independence Day Events going on in Riverside:
"Celebrate July 3rd and July 4th with the Village of Riverside! Join us July 3rd at 5 PM for the Concert in the Park! We’ll have music by Tony Ocean starting at 5:45 PM and The Brat Pack will perform from 7 PM - 10 PM. Food and beverages will be sold by our local businesses.
Start July 4th morning off right with Independence Day 5K. The race kicks off at 7:30 AM sharp. Online registration ends June 30, but race day registration is available 6:30 AM - 7:15 AM. Find out more registration information here.
Following the 5K, enjoy the Independence Day Parade starting at 8:45 AM moving south down Longcommon, from Big Ball Park to Guthrie Park. The parade will lead into the Festival in the Park in Guthrie Park. Zydeco Voodoo will be back again this year in the parade and at the Festival.
Thank you to Friends of the Fourth for helping to make these events possible. Thank you to the following Independence Day 5K sponsors: Riverside Bank, MacNeal Hospital, Hawthorne Racetrack, Riverside Foods, & Jewel of North Riverside."
Riverside certainly goes all out for Independence Day. If you want to help support this year's celebrations, consider a donation to the Friends of the Fourth who help make it all possible.
Hope to see you all there and feel free to say hello!
