Jul 9, 2012 5:35 PM -
The small unincorporated neighborhood of Grandwood Park is celebrating 50 years since their first Summerfest summer festival on Friday, July 13, through Saturday, July 14. The festival, which once resembled a backyard family barbeque has grown into a large festival with an average of 4,000 attendees. Bill Reil, president of Grandwood Park Civic Association, said organizers have added carnival rides, video games, and more fireworks in order to attract more people. However, residents said the festival will still remain a close-knit neighborhood memento with family-friendly atmosphere.
