The Ohio Players were in Fort Wayne today for the Summer Community Celebration. 

The event featured a free live concert by the Ohio Players, The Gap Experience, and the Sweet Water All Stars at McMillen Park Community Center. 

In addition to music, there was a school supplies and backpack giveaway, basketball tournaments, local social service agencies providing information and giveaways, and various vendors.

The goal of the celebration is to unify Fort Wayne and positively promote civic engagement and community pride.

“It’s a time for our Fort Wayne, Indiana family to get together and really show our community and our local representatives that we appreciate what they’re doing for our community,” said Keeley Hughes, owner of Aura Glow.

The event also honored fathers and encourage them to actively participate in their children’s academic success.

WANE-TV is a proud sponsor of the Summer Community Celebration.
