Organizers say the festival began as a picnic and gradually expanded into the much-anticipated communitywide celebration.

The festival continues from 1 to 10 p.m. Sunday with four bands scheduled to take the main stage: Without U2, a U2 tribute band, at 1 p.m.; CTA (a Chicago tribute band) at 3 p.m.; Hi Infidelity, playing music from the '80s until today, at 5:15 p.m.; and 7th Heaven, playing music of the '80s, at 8 p.m.
