Hundreds attended this past Saturday’s Summer Fest which was held at the Sprayfari Aquatic Park located at 119th & Kostner Ave.

The one-day event hosted by the Alsip Park District began under beautiful blue skies but was interrupted by a brief 15 minute rain shower around 9PM.

The festival included amusement rides for the children, live entertainment which included a magic show and live bands.

For the hungry fest-goers, there were hot dogs, sausage, corn and soft drinks.

The fest closed out with a bang as an elaborate fireworks display illuminated the sky sending the crowd home with smiles on their faces.
