Additional events will include July 3 Fireworks on the Mississippi, featuring patriotic music by the Air Force Band, then Super Diamond, Neil Diamond Tribute on July 9, the always popular Food Truck Festival on August 28, Jazz and Wine Festival on Sept 4, Alton Expo Sept 8-12 and Senior Services Plus Feed the Need on Sept 18."
