The Village of Romeoville Parks and Recreation Department hosted the annual Independence Day Celebration on Tuesday, July 3rd at Deer Crossing Park. Activities at the event included live music by the Ron Burgundy’s and Wedding Banned, food and drink vendors, face painting, games, crafts, multiple moon jumps, a bean bag tournament and, to wrap up the event, one of Illinois’s best fireworks shows. Over 12,000 participants visited the Celebration. The American Legion Post 52 and the Romeoville Veterans Commission kicked off the event by posting the colors and presenting the national anthem. The newly added concession stand and restroom facility served delicious food and compliments a new patio seating area next to Deer Crossing Park’s playground. The playground also had a face lift with turf that replaced the original rubber pour-in-place ground covering.
“The Romeoville Toyota Pavilion at Deer Crossing Park is a hub of celebration in the Romeoville community,” stated Mayor John Noak. “We’re thrilled that we can continue to provide our residents with outstanding events that get better and better each year.” RomeoFest is coming up August 2-5 and stretches from Deer Crossing Park to Village Park (900-1050 W. Romeo Road) with four days of fun including live music and family entertainment with no cover charge.
