Fourth at the Fort
12 PM-2 PM @ Apple River Fort State Historic Site (Elizabeth, IL)
Looking for something to fill the day before the fireworks start? Then come celebrate the Fourth of July at the Apple River Fort! Play a game of town ball (the precursor to baseball), cool off with a water race, and listen to speeches, toasts, and petitions, and more! Bring a blanket and a picnic lunch, or take out from your favorite restaurant, and enjoy the fun. (Note: this is the Sunday before the holiday. The Fort will be closed on Monday, July 4th.)
