The rain didn’t get in the way of the Fourth of July festivities at Kankakee Community College
yesterday. Mayor Chasity Wells-Armstrong joined residents in celebration of our nation’s Independence
Day at the Kankakee Valley Symphony Orchestra’s concert with the Youth Symphony and the Municipal Band.
Mayor surprised the crowd by conducting the Municipal Band during their performance of the “Stars and
Stripes” by John Phillips Sousa. While the rain did cancel the Symphony performance it did let up in
time for the City’s first ever laser light show experience that ended in with the Stars and Stripes.
