July 30, 2019 – During the Celebration, special accommodations are made for those who live and work downtown. The Decatur Celebration issues special wristbands that allow access into the footprint of the Celebration. People who live or work in the downtown area that will be fenced off for the Decatur Celebration should make sure they have their wristbands by tomorrow (Wednesday). Downtown residents and employees must come to the Decatur Celebration office (160 E Main Street Suite 200, Decatur, IL 62523) to be issued a special “Downtown Employee / Resident” wristband at no charge. This wristband grants you access to your home or workplace and is not valid at festival food and beverage booths.
