I stopped in at the Jeff Fest (a.k.a. The Jefferson Park Community Festival) on the northwest side today. It’s one of the many festivals going on this summer in Chicago.

(My photos can also be seen as a slideshow without the commentary.)

I used to have a shirt like that.

That crowd is watching Rick Saucedo, Chicago’s most famous Elvis impersonator. That sounds kind of hokey, but Rick is the real deal. He’s played Elvis on Broadway, and he’s released 11 records. He has a great voice and a lot of entertaining original material. His music was a terrific background to my festival visit.
