Pack your chair or blanket and head to Washington Park for some fabulous sounds ringing out for six nights at the International Carillon Festival. Rain or shine, six of the world’s top carillonneurs from The Netherlands and United States will present concerts nightly. A large screen at the base of the carillon will show concert musicians playing the keyboard during each performance. Fireworks on June 7 at 9:15 p.m. will bring a close to Friday’s performance. Event sponsors Rees Carillon Society, Springfield Park District and The Carillon Belles also invite the public to bring a picnic or food will be available from a vendor.
