What an amazing day in downtown Waukegan! June 16th ArtWauk included SoccerWauk hosted by the City of Waukegan, Heart of the City, Puro Futbol, Three Brothers Theatre, The Parlor and La Canoa. Kids had the opportunity to practice soccer in the streets with SISM Street Soccer and play in an inflatable soccer field on Genesee Street!!! Thanks to ESPN Deportes for coming to our Downtown Arts & Entertainment District and enjoying the fun!
Congratulations to the newly formed North Genesee International Merchants Block as it kicked off Saturday with a ribbon cutting!! We here at Main Street look forward to continuing our mission to partner and eagerly anticipate continuing our work with South – and now North – Genesee Merchants Blocks.
Prior to SoccerWauk, Juneteenth Celebration of Lake County kicked off at Bowen Park! Food and plenty of vendors with live entertainment including our Bulldog High School Bands and a special performance by Waukegan’s very own Lee England Jr. If you missed the performances for Lee catch our Facebook Live Stream here.
