To honor the local restaurant's tenth birthday, 4 Rivers Smokehouse will celebrate Saturday, Oct. 26, as "4 Rivers Day" in the city of Winter Park.

Winter Park Mayor Steve Leary will host a proclamation ceremony with 4 Rivers founder and CEO, John Rivers. The Winter Park is just down the street from the original birthplace of the regional chain, which now has 14 locations in Florida (including one soon to open in Daytona Beach) and one in Atlanta.

The Saturday event starts at 5 p.m. with the proclamation ceremony, followed by live music by Teddy Henderson, beer samples, deep-fried desserts, a pig roast and giveaways. The party goes until 8 p.m. and the public is welcome.

You can get more info about the party on their Facebook event page. 4 Rivers in Winter Park is located at 1600 W. Fairbanks Ave.
