Two events were cut short when the skies opened on Saturday night. Opportunity Knocks’ OK BBQ Block Party, however, started earlier, so were less affected. The Juneteenth Celebration at the Aquatic Center was rained out, so the Park District of Forest Park generously set aside a rain date: This Saturday, June 27, same time, 8:15 to 11:15 p.m.
