Thankfully, the rainy weather forecasts for the 2014 Taste of Melrose Park never materialized. As a result, the three-day event saw thousands upon thousands of festival patrons munching on numerous epicurean delights and enjoying continuous entertainment on our four stages.
Mayor Ron Serpico stated. “A special thank you goes out to the many sponsors who help underwrite the Taste of Melrose Park operating costs, to our tireless Taste Coordinator Peggy DiFazio, to the nearly 500 volunteers who ensure the festival runs smoothly, and to you, the Taste of Melrose Park patrons.”

What to Do In Case of a Power Outage Due to a Flooded Basement
LETTER TO THE EDITOR - June 25, 2014
Strip club doesn't belong next door to a convent
A lot of noise has surrounded the Catholic Missionary Sisters of St. Charles Borromeo and a Stone Park strip club recently opened next door to their convent. The strip club sits in a neighborhood where young children and families live, where elderly nuns come to retire and young sisters come to deepen their faith. It is not a neighborhood where a strip club belongs.
Residents and their dogs are invited to use the dog park from 8AM – 8PM, seven days a week throughout the summer and fall months. Rules and regulations are posted at the site and individuals must obtain a permit from the village of Melrose Park to utilize the park. For additional information, please call the Village of Melrose Park at (708) 343-4000.
