The City of Elmhurst was rocking and rolling with the ultimate block party: a two-day festival full of bands, food, drinks, and family fun.

This free summer send-off brought thousands of people to the heart of downtown.

Hours of music from some of the Midwest’s most memorable bands filled the streets of downtown, and local fan-favorite restaurants provided food and drinks.

While adults enjoyed a drink at the beer and wine tents, kids got their faces painted, used the photo booth, played games, and tested their cleverness with arts and crafts.
