Red, white and blue flags flew throughout Laishley Park on Sunday — Puerto Rican flags.

Parking was thin at the park with over 50 local residents participating in a walk to raise funds for Puerto Rico. Several vendors provided food and beverages. Leading up to the walk, participants chatted and danced to upbeat music that carried throughout the entire park. When the walk kicked-off, the Puerto Rican National Anthem played from the speakers.
