Thank you Riverside! Because of your kindness and generosity, and the great work of our village staff, our village enjoyed a wonderful Independence Day celebration. Looking out over the record crowd for the Concert in the Park on July 3, watching the many runners doing their best in the 5K run and seeing all the families and neighbors lining the parade route and mingling in Guthrie Park on The Fourth was an inspiring experience.

We appreciate the kind words directed toward our organizing committee, but the real Friends of the Fourth are all of the residents who support our efforts and make these celebrations possible. Let’s make next year even better!
