The annual Party in the Park hosted by Keller Williams Integrity Realty at Lake Orono Park proved to wildly popular this year with 175 classic cars, nice weather and lots to do.

Children enjoyed games, dancing fun from Dean-O-Mite Entertainment and a balloon artist. Tri River Rodders Car Club brought the classic cars. More than 50 local businesses had a booth. Keller Williams Integrity Realty gave away 2,000 free hot dogs and cake.

In the process, the event collected 303 pounds of food for CAER and raised about $2,500 for Great River Family Promise, an Elk River-based homeless outreach ministry.

Dean-O-Mite Entertainment held court in the center of Keller Williams’ Party in the Park, challenging kids in hula hoop contests and getting them to sing and dance.
