Hundreds of residents and visitors will descend on Scoville Park on the first Sunday in June for the Day in Our Village Festival, which features 150 to 200 Oak Park-based vendors and various organizations.
Meanwhile, only a few blocks away on the same day, droves of families will be making their way to the Oak Park and River Forest High School graduation ceremony. The confluence of events could be a parking and traffic nightmare for the village.
Village spokesman David Powers said organizers of the festival have spoken with Oak Park Police and, "they really don't anticipate any problems."
"Police have a plan for the graduation to handle traffic and parking, and they are not concerned about (the two events) falling on the same day," Powers said.
