In its third year running, the America’s First Responders Fest is set to be bigger and better. This year, we’re extending our gratitude to all the heroes who keep us safe, free, and healthy around the clock. Join us as we celebrate and honor the invaluable contribution of all first responders.
“We think it’s time to take the next step and have a celebration for all essential workerswho keep us safe, keep us free, and keep us healthy, 24-hours a day, 7- days a week,” said event organizer and Elgin Township Trustee Mark Bialek. “We will pay tribute to them on stage, and we will party with them in the park”
