Love abounds at Downtown Oak Park event.

Here are just a few scenes from Friday's "What's Love Got to Do With It?" event, thrown by the Downtown Oak Park business group.

At , 1024 North Boulevard, Oak Park Festival Theatre's Kevin Theis and Belinda Bremner delighted shoppers with spirited sonnet readings.

Over at , 125. N. Marion St., Megan Wells, artistic director at the Madison Street Theatre, performed as Scheherazade, regaling the crowd with the Persian queen's tales.
