For Summer, Kindleberger Park Has It Going On

Festival director Kris Jordan previews the 2019 Summer Concert Series and the July 10-14 Kindleberger Summer Festival of the Performing Arts, touching on popular returning acts, such as Matt Giraud and the Beatles tribute band Shout!, and a Festival Day filled with activities, from a Boy Scout French Toast Breakfast, to a Car, Truck & Motorcycle Show, Book Sale, Arts & Crafts Show, a Youth Production of The Skokie Detective Charter School, and the Family Musical, Disney's Freaky Friday. 

Jordan says the free festival, now in its 38th season, was something she appreciated as a parent with young children, when her family moved to Parchment in the early 1990s. In the beginning, her children wanted to act in the youth theatre productions, and she soon found herself helping to organize the festival in various capacities. She credits hard-working volunteers, community support, and a wide range of sponsors with the long-term success of the festival and concert series.
