The La Salle State Bank thermometer read 42 degrees but that didn’t matter for the hundreds who gathered in downtownLa SalleSaturday for the seventh annual Jazz’N the Street.
Near-frigid temperatures with a slight breeze seemed to mix well with classic jazz tunes, heaping containers of nachos from the Sanchez family and wine and beer tasting from local vendors.
Admittedly, numbers were down compared to last year, said Christine Dahm, who helped organize the event for La Salle Business Association. But there still was plenty of fun to be had.
“The weather is a problem this year but we’re still doing a good job of promoting local businesses,” she said.
Dahm’s friend, Max Dillabough ofDes Plaines, made the trip down to attend the event despite the cold weather.
“It’s cold, but there’s drinks so that helps,” he said. “And the music is real good.”
The La Salle Business Association is a group that works to promote the business community in La Salle.
