Edison Park Fest

I see the fest is back Aug 14 weekend.
Anyone actually like this fest that lives in the hood? I'd like to see it go.

My observation is its a bunch of drunks being served free beer by their buddies working the beer truck. Cant see any value it has for the neighborhood.

  • IMHO Been here long enough to know

    It does when it's your buddy on the beer truck.

  • I know plenty of people that enjoy it. It's a great chance to get together with friends that have lived in Edison Park that grew up here. I have friends that travel 50 miles to visit and have a good time. If the worst problems are people getting free beer it's a total success.

  • Lived here 2+ years third EP fest. We absolutely LOVE it and have had friends over every year for it.

Is Edison Park a safe place to live in?

Hy, we are a family with a 1 year old, we've been living in old irving park/ portage park for about three years now and recently things are getting pretty shady around here, shootings, gangs, even a drive by shooting at our building, we really want to move and I like Edison Park but if I don't know if it has the same issues as Irving Park..... Thank you!

  • TDawg54 Resident of Old Norwood

    chris, you have tactical unit officers patrolling Jeff Park; their mandate is to eradicate any gang activity by any means, as my adult son with Tourette's found out when he was swarmed by the black shirts. Part of their reasoning: he was wearing a Cubs BB cap 'the wrong way.'...

    chris, you have tactical unit officers patrolling Jeff Park; their mandate is to eradicate any gang activity by any means, as my adult son with Tourette's found out when he was swarmed by the black shirts. Part of their reasoning: he was wearing a Cubs BB cap 'the wrong way.' So with that kind of mentality it's a wonder there are any baseball caps left in JP.

    That aside, heck yeah when you're worried about your children staying safe in a neighborhood it's time to get the hell out of Dodge. You can be a vocal proponent for your neighborhood, but if I'm worried about walking my stroller down Irving Park Road, then I'd be looking for a new place to live.

    We made the move a few years ago into the Edison park school neighborhood and never looked back. We now have a wonderful sense of community. A truly wonderful place to raise a family - surrounded by positive influences. If you are having any doubts, this is the time to make the move. It's easier to relocate when kids are young, before they get attached to friends and surroundings. Good luck!

Fly emergency

Hi we have pesky flies in our house and don't know what they are or how to get rid of them or what their source of food is or where they are originating.

Our house is clean and no garbage left out and we don't smell anything bad.

We had some new faucets and toilets installed and perhaps that caused issue with pipes or disrupted something.

We are pretty sure the flies are not cluster flies, drain flies, or fuit flies.

Exterminators have come out and sprayed but after 2-3 weeks, the flies come back.

I have attached pictures.

Thank you for any help
