Plan to spend your day downtown for the 19th annual Party on the Pavement street festival presented by the Downtown Racine Corporation. With over 12 blocks filled with live music, incredible food and drinks, street performances, shopping, games and rides, there is something for the whole family. The day’s festivities kick off at noon and run until 7:00 pm. Admission to the Party on the Pavement grounds is free, which takes place throughout downtown on Main Street from State Street to 7th Street, and all of 6th Street from Lake Avenue to City Hall.
If the thrill of over 15,000 attendees isn’t enough, the street performances slated for Party on the Pavement will surely get you excited. Division BMX Stunt Team will be soaring through the air on the College Avenue and 6th Street. You can catch one of their shows at 12:30pm, 2:00pm, 4:00pm and 5:30pm.
