Perhaps the longest line at the event was at the Culver's truck, where owner Kevin Weasler dished out free servings of frozen custard, but the crowds remained steady throughout the three-hour event, which drew people to dance to the music, jump in bouncy houses, slide down a fire pole, peer inside a police car, and learn more about area organizations such as the Buffalo Grove Lions Club, Vernon Area and Indian Trails public libraries and Buffalo Grove Environmental Action Team.
Sunny weather graced this year's event, sparking comments from many event-goers who remembered the 2011 event, which was evacuated due to severe weather.
