McHENRY – The McHenry Area Downtown Business Association will host its second annual “Taste of Downtown” in June.

Come with family and friends to visit and taste from 18 downtown McHenry restaurants on Riverside Drive, Green Street and Main Street.

Each will offer a taste of some of their favorite food or beverages for a nominal cost of $1 to $2. Visitors can walk block-to-block or ride the trolley provided by the City of McHenry for a sampling from each participating business. Many downtown shops also will be offering discounts and specials, according to a news release.

The event will include demonstrations and shows from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. by the Bike Haven in Veterans Memorial Park.
