Riverside Drive Promenade

The Riverside Drive Promenade is one of the first things visitors and residents see when they enter Elgin on the Metra Milwaukee District West line from Chicago. When they arrive at night the canvas tulips will attract their eye.

Every night families can be spotted enjoying the light show along the Fox River. The light show creates quite the art exhibit for a city focused on highlighting all of the artists.
