Racine Roundup

The Racine Roundup aired on TMJ4 during the 4 O’Clock news on Thursday, June 22. This week, Racine County Eye reporter Emma Widmar discussed various community happenings around Racine County with Ryan Jenkins and Andrea Albers.

1. Business Spotlight: Little Loves

To kick of this week’s Racine Roundup, Widmar brought a Business Spotlight to the table for something the area has not seen before: soft play rentals.

Little Loves offers luxury soft play rentals like bounce houses and ball pits that are geared for ages 0-4 years. The business began out of a need for something like this in our community. Ciena Velez, a registered nurse and mother of three children, saw the need and got to work creating this company that has seen a lot of community support so far.

2. 2023 Racine County 4th of July parades

Next up, Widmar got to announce that, among the celebrations for the upcoming holiday, parades will be in full force. She gave viewers a list of parades in Racine County followed by some exciting news.

One parade in particular, Downtown Racine’s 4th Fest of Greater Racine, will see the Racine County Eye featured with a float to celebrate a milestone anniversary.

The Racine County Eye is celebrating 10 years of journalism that serves the Racine and Kenosha communities. We look forward to seeing you at the parade!
