More About Light Up the Night! A Live on the Riverwalk Event

This inaugural event of the “Live on the Riverwalk” series is a
family-friendly community celebration featuring many firsts:

- First celebration on McHenry Riverwalk’s newly constructed waterfront patio at Miller Point.
- First lighting of the McHenry Riverwalk Fire Globes along Boone Creek.
- First fall gathering at Miller Point to feature live music, local artisans and enriching kids activities.

Imagine…food and beverages, fun, families, and fireglobes in the crisp fall air…
