Last week our friends at Heart of the City celebrated opening their new location at 114 South Genesee Street, Suite 303 with a Ribbon Cutting and Open House! The City of Waukegan Chamber of Commerce hosted the event as part of their monthly Business After Hours Networking Event! The food and alcohol were sponsored by Green Town Tavern in the Downtown District.
Smiling faces all around this past Friday for the 2nd Annual Waukegan Night Out/ Touch-A-Truck! The combined event was sponsored by the Waukegan Police and Fire Departments and the Waukegan Park District and included heavy machinery, a K-9 demonstration, bounce houses, face painting, and a tug-of-war between Waukegan Police and Gurnee Police Departments.
The weather was perfect and the beach was filled with children and families!
In addition to all the other fun, Chuck and Stacy Castellanos and their companion Finn reenacted French fur traders landing on the beach took place. They took the time to explain what the fur traders did, that the canoe is a birch-bark replica of the canoe traders would have used in the 1600s, and discussed the danger and excitement of canoeing on the big lakes. To close the evening, Zootopia was shown on the beach and free popcorn was provided by the Waukegan Park District!
Thanks to all of the vendors that came out to make this great evening successful! We look forward to seeing you all at this great family event next year! Photos courtesy of Explore Waukegan and Waukegan Park District.
