Palatine is a village in Cook County, Illinois and a northwestern residential suburb of Chicago. Palatine is the seventh-largest community in Cook County and the 18th largest in the state of Illinois. Palatine has been on-going in the process of revitalizing its downtown area. This process has led to a new train station, a nearby parking garage, and several new condominiums, rowhomes, and commercial buildings.

Palatine holds several annual events for the community. Streetfest, which is similar to the Taste of Chicago, includes lines of food vendors down the streets of Downtown Palatine, with music playing and games and other fun activities going on at the same time. This happens at the end of summer (August) every year and is meant for families and friends to enjoy. Another tradition of Palatine is the schedule of Fourth of July events that occur every year. From an annual parade, to fireworks which traditionally occur on July 3rd, to the carnival that comes into town, Palatine is full of the traditional celebrations of the Fourth of July holiday.
