WAUCONDA – Most teens and those younger took up position on one end of Cook Park during Wauconda Fest over the weekend. That's where the carnival and games were.
The other part was adult turf. That would be where bands such as Modern Day Romeos played – and where adults (with regulation wristbands) had easy access to beer and other drinks.
A huge canopy hung over most of the food vendors, including local favorites such as Three Amigas and Bulldogs Grill.
Outside that area, the stand for funnel cakes proved popular, with the line often long.
A ride on the ferris wheel gave riders a view of Bangs Lake, the park, the library and the high school.
