CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — The Champaign Park District is hosting one of its most popular events of the summer this weekend: Champaign-Urbana Days.
Community members can enjoy live entertainment, food trucks and family activities at Douglas Park. The event also included several vendors, gospel music, free face painting, inflatables, balloons and caricatures.
Park District coordinator Robert White said it’s a special way to close out summer.
“That’s what we’re in these positions to do: is to give back to the community and uplift everyone and that’s what C-U Days is all about,” White said.
