CHAMPAIGN -- The park district's Taste of Champaign-Urbana wrapped up Sunday. The event kicked off Friday. Organizers say thousands came out to take part in the three-day festival.

It's an important fundraiser for the Champaign Park District. Organizers think this year they've already raised more than $100,000. It's all thanks to a bigger turnout.

"This year the weather had been perfect. It's drawing people out as well as all of the vendors, restaurants, artists and the great live entertainment."

All proceeds will go to the park district's Youth Scholarship Fund.
