The Second Annual Grant Park Summer Shade Festival was a tremendous success. The 5000+ visitors were able to shop, dine, listen to music, participate in the 5K RUN FOR THE PARK, watch high speed competitive cycling races and more. A special thanks is extended to our good neighbors at Adams Realtors for their leadership, planning and managing of this event. "We are very pleased to show off beautiful Grant Park," said Bill Adams, president of Adams Realtors. "Of course, the Adams team involved in this did a great job! I extend kudos to Erika Brown, Debbie Jones Kelly, Monica Lee, Lisa Marie Smith, Nicole Kelly, Haydee Alonso and all the support team of Adams agents and employees who made the Summer Shade Festival a hit."
