A 25th Anniversary Celebration will be held by the Broadway Historic District, which was formed in 1988. The all-ages event will include live music (Rose 'N Thorns; Lynne Hart Jazz Quartet; Pam and Will Trotter Folk Duo; and The Treble with Men Barbershop Quartet), food vendors, an arts and crafts fair, children's activities, a recording room where attendees interested in sharing their Broadway stories will be interviewed, antique cars and tractors, a guided walking tour of 22nd Street, and a partial Great Unveiling. Great Unveilings are a signature event for the historic district where siding is removed from a home to reveal the original clapboard. The Broadway Historic District is a 19th century neighborhood in the heart of Rock Island. The event will be on 22nd Street in Rock Island, between 7th and 9th Avenues. Parking will be available on neighborhood streets. A short presentation will be held at 12:50 p.m. on the steps of the Karpeles Manuscript Museum, 700 22nd St.  Admission is free, and all are welcome. For more information, visit or call (309) 912-2657.
