Irene Flores drew a small crowd in Humboldt Park earlier last month while dancing to the sounds of Colombian band Herencia de Timbiquí during the World Music Festival. An enthusiastic attendee of the city's Summer Dance series, Flores has had plenty of time to practice her moves. The Edgewater resident—her age, she quips, is a "military secret"—makes a point to visit every festival in town, and the two hours she spends settling on just the right attire for each event is "definitely worth it," she says. "It lifts my spirits."
