The River of Life Unity Day is Saturday, August 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m at Schwiebert Park in Rock Island.
There will be free barbecue, ice cream, live music, face painting, magic and giveaways.
A handful of local churches have come together to put it on wanting to bring the community closer. They want to do so by creating cultural acceptance and honor area police departments.
Local pastors Scott Reece, Angelo Julien, and Darlene Williams join Local 4 News to share more about the event.
