Party in the Park had everything “covered” for a great time Saturday at McKinley Park with classic concert foods, community camaraderie and some of the most popular bands of the 1970s.

More than 2,000 people enjoyed a night filled with music from Change of Heart, a Heart tribute band; Revelation, a Journey tribute band; and 7 Bridges, a six-piece Eagles tribute band.

John Kawa, Creston Parks and Recreation Board chairman, said he has heard nothing but positive feedback about the three bands that performed.

“The weather held for us, which we were very grateful,” Kawa said. “It was a perfect night, everything went together real well.”

Board members and volunteers are tearing down and doing a final cleaning around McKinley Park today in preparation of farmers’ market tonight, which kicks off at 4:30 p.m.

“It is pretty constant,” Kawa said. “We are glad that people always seem to do a good job cleaning up after themselves and acting like they care. The park is in pretty good shape.”

He added the presence of the Creston Police and Fire Departments was appreciated to keep Party in the Park goers safe and the sponsors helped make it another successful year.
