Partnering with the community to provide space for art, culture, food, wellness and more are cornerstones of The Promenade Bolingbrook’s Live 360° program. On Saturday, August 10 from noon to 7 p.m., The Promenade is celebrating the program with a day full of family fun during the 2019 Taste of Bolingbrook. The event, in partnership with the Bolingbrook Area Chamber of Commerce, includes food, live music, an expanded Family Fun Zone, and more.

“Live 360º has always been about cultivating community,” said Kris Kuchler, marketing director at The Promenade Bolingbrook. “The community has responded so well to the program that we are kicking off the expansion with a day of fun-filled family activities as part of the annual Taste of Bolingbrook.”

Live 360° has been rolled out at 26 Starwood Retail Partners’ properties throughout the country in the past two years. It was selected by Chain Store Age magazine as one of the best retail-center experiences in the United States. The program was also honored with a World Retail Award for “Best Customer Experience Initiative-Mall Owners,” at the World Retail Congress conference in Madrid last year.

Local businesses and vendors from the surrounding community will be onsite with hands-on activities and experiences for the whole family to enjoy. All the events will take place in the Live 360° Zone on Hemmingway Trail, unless otherwise noted.
