RACINE — Racine’s annual Fourth of July celebration took place last Sunday in the village.

The day started with an annual chicken barbeque at the fire department and a parade in the evening.

After the parade, many ventured to Star Mill Park to wait on the fireworks display. At the park, Kona Ice was set up, as was a bounce house to entertain children.

The annual frog jumping competition was also at the park. Participants of all ages could bring their own frogs or rent one at the event to see which one jumped the furthest. Each frog was allowed three jumps and then the length of the consecutive jumps was measured to determine the winner.

To conclude the evening, fireworks were set off at 10 p.m.
