PRAIRIE VILLAGE, Kan. — What better place to spend a beautiful night of weather than a jazz festival?

Hundreds decided to pile into Harmon Park for a Prairie Village Jazz Festival where multiple jazz musicians have took the stage.

But for everyone there, something even better than the cool temps, was seeing hundreds of different ages, backgrounds and races all sitting on the same lawn smiling and dancing.

“It’s simple you can see it out here today for the festival or any time you go to a festival with jazz music. You see a lot of people coming in with worries and complaints and problems and when they leave they feel lighter. This is a music that actually frees you. It opens up your heart and soul,” local jazz singer Kevin Mahogany said.
