About the Event

The festivities include Tabernacle Big Band’s patriotic concert and sing-a-long, food, kid’s activities, and the naming of the Most Patriotic Boy and Girl winner, followed by fireworks at dark. Children, age 10 and younger, can compete by dressing in their patriotic best wearing red-white and blue and prizes will be awarded.

Tabernacle Big Band will headline the concert with their 1940’s-era band of trumpets, trombones, saxophones and rhythm section. The band performs jazz and patriotic arrangements as well as “Glenn Miller” style swing music. The patriotic sing-a-long encourages the audience to join in with song sheets available. All military veterans are recognized and asked to stand when their branch of service song is played during the “Service Salute.”

Patriotism at The Post is free to attend but asks for a $5 per car parking fee. Concessions and cold drinks will be available for sale. Apex Inflatables will have bounce houses for the kids to enjoy for a charge. CHI Memorial Hospital is providing golf cart shuttle service for those who need extra help getting onto the polo field.
