Over 200 people gathered in Buena Circle Park last Thursday night to enjoy the music of the Thomas Pace Band and the friendly company of their Buena Park neighbors. People of all ages brought blankets, chairs and tables piled with food and drink. Thank you to RCN for providing popcorn and drinks and to all of those who helped with face painting for the kids! A great time was had by all and we look forward to these free concerts next summer! As one observer put it, “looks like Mayberry RFD right here in the middle of Chicago”.
