The Palatine Jaycees are once again sponsoring the 55th annual Fourth of July Hometown Fest celebration from June 29 through July 4 at the Community Park on Palatine Road and Northwest Highway.
The Jaycees are adding a new event to the festival this year. On Sunday, July 1 from noon until 2 p.m. the Jaycees are trying to set a new world record for the most people playing a hand held video game at one time at one location. Everyone wishing to participate is asked to bring their own video game to the park at noon. There is a $2 fee for participation. All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.
