The City of Rockford kicks off Independence Day with its annual Patriotic Prayer Breakfast.
The event at Sinnissippi Park Music Shell included a free continental breakfast, a flag giveaway, along with patriotic songs and performances.
This year's theme is, "God and Country."
"I mean, there's so many things going on in our community. And if we can start it off with prayer, we ask that, you know, things get better and why not today, the whole country," says Gloria Cardenas Cudia, Prayer Breakfast organizer.
This is the 26th year of the event.
