"I love this event," Eunice Martin of Carol Stream said. "It is a place for the community to come and interact."

After scaling a faux rock wall with grace, speed and strength, Dante Duran, 11, of Streamwood said, "What I like best about the fest is it has bunch of activities for kids."

Ken Mogge of Bartlett kept a steady eye on the rope ladder while countless children attempted to conquer it. He finally gave it a try while wearing a smile from ear to ear like many of the children before him. However, he capitulated to its unsteady nature with a laugh.

"The thing I like most about this event is that it's free," he said.

The fest continues from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Visit justplay.org.
