Round Lake Chamber of Commerce throws block party for community
For some, six hours might not have been enough to enjoy all that was available Saturday at the Round Lake Area Chamber of Commerce Community Block Party Expo and Craft Fair at the sports center in Round Lake Beach.
Besides the numerous businesses, craft and food booths (and a wings eating contest), kids could see an exotic animal show when they weren't playing in the jump house or the Meltdown Game. Also on hand to meet the younger visitors were the Polynesian Princess from Disney's "Moana," and Spidey from the Marvel comic book series.
And because the event was held inside, the bad weather that curtailed outdoor activities may even have helped attendance
"The weather is actually perfect for us. We've had a great community turnout," said Shanna Coakley, executive director of the Round Lake Area Chamber of Commerce.
