Does anyone know what's happening on NW HWY within Park Ridge? I'm in downtown EP and there were hundreds of people walking west earlier and now I'm seeing the same group walking east. THere is a bus in front of my house. There are security guards and all. What is this?

No. Not a bar crawl. I'm a little off the track for a bar crawl. And there were kids

About a hour ago I passed a huge group (hundreds! ) on Elston near Foster heading to the Shrine. They have a long way to go.
