GLEN ELLYN – The Glen Ellyn Park District's 25th annual Lake Ellyn Cardboard Regatta on June 30 helped kick off the village's Fourth of July activities.
Along with fastest race times, awards also were presented for team spirit, the most creative boat and the best sinking.
For the third year, the Food Truck Picnic in the Park was held in conjunction with the event at Lake Ellyn Park. Proceeds went to the Fourth of July Committee, an all-volunteer organization, to fund the Fourth of July Parade and fireworks.
