Downtown Riverside was magical as witnessed by all who ventured out to celebrate the holiday season in downtown Riverside on Dec. 2 with the arrival of Santa Claus. This year’s 42nd Annual Riverside Holiday Stroll was a huge success.

As many are aware, an event of this magnitude would not be possible without the support of generous individuals from our community. On behalf of the Riverside Chamber of Commerce, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many businesses, community groups, volunteers and individuals for their time and financial support that contributed to the success of this year’s Riverside Holiday Stroll. 

All of us who worked to plan this event would like to extend our many thanks to the village of Riverside and its staff, the Riverside Township supervisor and staff, Riverside Police Department, Riverside Auxiliary Police, Riverside Police Explorers, Riverside Fire Department and the Public Works Department for their continued support of the event. All of these organizations give of their time and provide the necessary support to make this magical night possible for the village or Riverside. 

I would like to off a special thanks to this year’s planning committee members: Cathy Haley, Patty Gill, Greg Gorski and Julie Stack.
