Red, white and blue fun

STEVENS POINT (WAOW)--  The 4th of July celebration continues in Stevens Point this weekend.

On Sunday, people gathered at Pfiffner Park for live music as a part of the Riverfront Rendezvous.

Local businesses offered food and drinks for everyone in attendance.  This annual event is in its 27th year.

Director of Parks and Recreation, Tom Schrader, said that it is important to get the whole community together.

"It gets better every year.  A lot of people come back to town for it. It is kind of like a homecoming for the community," Schrader says.

Sunday night a lighted boat parade took place followed by fireworks.  All of the events are free.
