On Tuesday, Aug. 4, a section of downtown Oak Park will look and feel more like a Parisian boulevard than Main Street. The annual Art dans la Rue (Art in the Street) will setup on Marion between Lake Street and North Boulevard between 12 and 7 p.m.

The street will be replete with smells, artistry, European sounds and lots of dancing.

Local retailers such as HooDoo Headwear, Sugar Fixé Pâtisserie and Careful Peach Boutique will have their wares and services out in the open. Musical acts will include Claudia Hommel, Le Percolatuer and Tina's Can Can Cabaret dancers.

The Lake Theatre's First Tuesday Club will show La Vie en Rose at noon and 7 p.m. to add to the atmosphere. 

For more on Art dans la Rue, call the Downtown Oak Park office at 708-383- 4145 or visit
