The first full day of PrairieFest was a hot one. Sweltering, in fact. And though attendance was down for most of the day – it’s a weekday, after all, and did we mention it was really hot? – the Oswegoland Park District festival still came through with the entertainment.
Friday saw performances by local bands Back Country Roads and 7th Heaven on the main stage, as well as a set by students in the Fox River Academy of Music ad Art, and routines by Park District dance students. And at 6 p.m., a group of dancers leapt up from the main stage area, flash mob style, and put on an impromptu show.
The fun got off to a late start on Friday, since someone had cut through the electrical wires powering Windy City Amusements’ rides, Oswego police said. The power was back up and running by 1 p.m. No word from police on arrests or charges.
Check out the photos from today, and head on back to PrairieFest tomorrow. Your Oswego Patch team will be in our booth from noon to 5 p.m. Come say hello!
