Members of The Fold – George Castady ( left), Mark Rhoades (drums), Dan Castady, and Matt Pittman – will be the headline act July 4 at The Taste of Lombard.

THUMBS UP: Are you ready to rock? A couple of Willowbrook High School alumni will headline the Taste of Lombard on Fourth of July. Brothers Dan and George Castady, both members of The Fold, will play before and after the fireworks show Friday night. Earlier the same day, local band Gamechanger will take the stage after winning this year's Willowbrook Battle of the Bands.

THUMBS UP: Happy Fourth of July, Villa Park. Enjoy the annual VFW Independence Day Parade, which steps off at noon. Have fun during the long holiday weekend and, of course, be safe.
