RACINE — Racine’s annual 4th of July celebration took place on Sunday in the village.

The events began at the volunteer fire department at 11 a.m. for chicken barbeque dinners and homemade ice cream.

The events resumed at 6:30 p.m. with a parade which looped through the village and included several participants. Businesses, churches, first responders, sports teams, politicians, fair royalty, the education association, tractor drivers, ATV riders, horses and many more were part of the parade line-up on Sunday.

After the parade, many went to Star Mill Park to wait on the firework display. At the park, Kona Ice was set up, as was a bounce house to entertain children. The annual frog jumping competition was also at the park. Participants of all ages could bring their own frogs or rent on at the event to see which one jumps the furthest. Each frog got three jumps and then the length of the consecutive jumps is measured to determine the winner.

To conclude the evening, fireworks were set off at 10 p.m.

Additional photos from the activities in Star Mill Park will appear in an upcoming edition of The Daily Sentinel.
