"The village of Round Lake Heights is a small village, but every year the turnout is great," Roehlk said of the parade and festival. "This really proves how close we are as a community. Residents, their families and friends, and others are welcome to come share the day with us."

Parade highlights are expected to include the Round Lake High School color guard, Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, the Medinah Flying Carpets and the Wauconda Police Department's Sept. 11 memorial squad car.

After the parade, the festival will kick off at noon and extend until 11 p.m. The festival, which doesn't have an admission fee, will be on the village hall grounds, just northeast of Rollins and Cedar Lake roads.

Nachos, burritos, tacos, corn in a cup, Philadelphia cheesesteak sandwiches and Italian egg rolls will be on the food menu. Activities will include miniature golf starting at noon, a bags tournament at 4 p.m., a Texas Hold 'em tournament at 6 p.m. and bingo from 7 to 9 p.m.

On the entertainment side, WRLR 98.3-FM will provide music for dancing to start the day. At 5 p.m., the Joe Power Band will take the main stage, followed by D.O.D. at 7 p.m. and Hot Hole Plumbers at 9 p.m.

Fireworks are scheduled to go off about 9:45 p.m. The show is projected to run 15 to 20 minutes.
