Canasta Plays Buena Park Circle
It was a fabulous night in Buena Park Circle Thursday, as all sorts of people showed up for the Spring Concert by local favorites Canasta. Gene Tenner played roving photographer and took over 200 photos of all the fun. You can find them and download them at https://flic.kr/s/aHskB7xT3s.
Our thanks to Buena Park Neighbors, the Chicago Cubs, Thorek Hospital, Uptown United, and the Park District for sponsoring a wonderful night.
"Despite the cool evening residents came to Buena Circle Park on June 16 to listen to music that was provided by Canasta, meet old friends and make new ones. Childrren enjoyed the bouncy house, face painting and the food truck options. This is always a fun event when Buena Park feels like a small town."
UU Note: Mark your calendars NOW for Thursday, August 18th, when the legendary jazz and blues singer Frieda Lee will perform in the second Concert in the Park.
