Park Forest, IL-(ENEWSPF)- As of this writing just after 11 PM Tuesday evening, the National Weather Service in Chicago says there’s a “20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after 1 PM.” The day is expected to be mostly sunny, with a high near 85. The wind is expected to be mild, coming from the west at 5 to 10 mph. All of this means signs point to “Yes!” for the Village BBQ and Main Street Nights, slated for Wednesday.

AccuWeather, as of this writing, shows no rain at all expected for Wednesday. Look for a high of 86 and the AccuWeather RealFeel to be around 91.

If it finally happens, the Resident Appreciation Community Barbeque, as it is more properly called, will get underway at 6 PM on the Village Green.

At 6:30 PM, Jim Nesci will entertain while educating the audience about reptiles. He has four types of reptiles, and, some may recall, these are not small creatures.

Here’s Jim Nesci from a few years ago:

Meet Bubba the Alligator at Park Forest’s Main Street Nights. In addition, learn some amazing facts about alligators. And, don’t worry, Bubba isn’t particularly hungry at this point. From July 2017.

At 7:30 PM, Bernie Glim & Friends, a Country/Rock/Jazzy/Blues band of master musicians led by Bernie Glim on guitar and vocals, will entertain as the daylight fades. The ensemble includes Al Joseph on violin, Karen Larson Glim and Rachel McGowan on percussion and vocals, Jim Williams on bass and Scott Bonshire on drums. Their CD, “ Playin’ To Win“, was voted in the Top Ten of the 2007 album releases in the midwest. Performing over 200 dates a year, their warmth, humor, and ability to engage audiences of all ages has gained them a loyal following.
