The Racine Roundup aired on TMJ4 during the 4 O’Clock news on Thursday, July 6. This week, Racine County Eye web editor Loren Lamoreaux discussed various community happenings around Racine County with Ryan Jenkins and Susan Kim.
1. Business Spotlight: La Oaxaqueña
Loren kicked things off by talking about the week’s Business Spotlight. La Oaxaqueña, the newest candy store, has opened specializing in dulces and botanas (also known as sweets and snacks) at 1405 Lathrop Ave.
Benito Cruz opened the store after years of watching his wife excel as the owner of World of Bridal Anahi, a recent Business Spotlight.
The store sells an assortment of Hispanic-based candies and treats, but is looking to expand into worldwide treats as time progresses.

2. St. Lucy’s Fest
Next up, Lamoreaux shared information about this year’s St. Lucy’s Fest. Today is the last day to get in on the fun.
There is something for people of all interests and ages happening at the local church festival. Lamoreaux shared countless reasons why the community continues to come back and support this church festival.
3. Spirit of ’76 float restored
While the 4th of July may be over, our last story featured the unwavering efforts of the American Legion Post 310 Racine to restore a 100-year-old float.
Lamoreaux explained how this float made its way into this year’s parade because for over a month, veterans who belong to the local post have been working to keep the spirit of the Spirit of ’76 and the Boys of ’76 float alive by rebuilding, remaking, and modernizing their bronzed gem.
