Riverside Parks & Recreation is hosting yet another great family event this Wednesday night, October 24th, from 6 pm to 7 pm right in downtown Riverside with their annual Howl-O-Ween event.
The event kicks off at 6 pm with the lighting of the Water Tower and is followed by a costume parade over to Riverside Township Hall. There will be games and prizes along with a magic show starting at 6:30 pm.
Here I am with the Intern at last year's event:
Riverside has no shortage of creative folks building new & interesting businesses and today's guest is another great example.
Grey Ingram and his wife Lauren are the creative geniuses beyond Loud Mouth Food Bikes, one of Chicago's first food bike businesses specializing in locally sourced gourmet hot dogs & sausages.
In our conversation, we discuss Grey's small-town Southern roots, the highly competitive advertising world that lead to developing a plan B, how they came up with the food bike concept and took Loud Mouth Food Bikes from a vision to reality, and how our community can help make sure this new business not only survives but thrives.
I hope you enjoy getting to know our neighbor Grey Ingram.
When you have a conversation with someone so genuine and real, it's hard not to walk away feeling recharged & refreshed. And that's the exact feeling I got from my conversation with our guest today.
Sarah VenHorst is the owner of CC Wellness Solutions, a new community focused wellness center offering adolescent & women's health counseling, reiki, and creative life coaching right here in downtown Riverside.
In our conversation, we discuss Sarah's journey from English teacher to school counselor to private practice, how and why she started her practice before leaving her previous role, and how her desire to provide a place of community and well-being right here in Riverside inspired her to launch her own business and build out additional service offerings.
I really enjoyed getting to know our neighbor Sarah VenHorst and I think you will too.
Welcome neighbor and thanks for stopping by. My name is Brian Plain and I'll be your host.
