SYCAMORE – Downtown Sycamore is the place to be on Tuesday, July 9, as the city and Discover Sycamore present Tuesdays on the Town and Summer on State.

From 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., there will be a Salute to America on California Street between State and Elm streets. Local veteran organizations will participate, city treasurer Adam Orton said, and the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War Dutton Camp #49 will have a display of Civil War memorabilia.

There will be free activities for children, and visitors are encouraged to wear red, white and blue. From 5:30 to 7 p.m., Jazz in Progress will play patriotic and World War II-era songs live.

At 9 p.m., activities move to the corner of Somonauk and Elm streets for Summer on State. Discover Sycamore will host a free outdoor movie in the lot, and concessions will be available to purchase by donation.

The movie is “Surf’s Up,” an animated family comedy about Cody Maverick, a 17-year-old penguin who is sure he has what it takes to surf his way to superstardom. “Surf’s Up” has a running time of 85 minutes and is rated PG.

The final Summer on State movie viewing will be Friday, July 26. The movie will be “Wreck-It Ralph.” Visit discoversycamore.com for more information.
