noting:

"The Block Party, which typically draws about 40,000 people, includes food booths from local restaurants, arts and crafts, and a children's area. The party is the latest in a string of events, including a wine and jazz festival, a college baseball tournament, the annual air show and other music shows, that have brought thousands of people into the area this year."

Next weekend, The Buckinghams are in concert in Havana, Illinois.
