It was a beautiful night for rubbing elbows in Berks County.

"Schmooz-a-palooza" was held Thursday night at Willow Glen Park in Sinking Spring.

Members of the Greater Reading Chamber of Commerce came together for some food and fun at the annual picnic.

Organizers say the event is a great way for people to stay connected.

"The folks are having a great time making contacts, making acquaintances, reacquainting with people they haven't seen in awhile but it's all about networking," said Scott Gruber of the Greater Reading Chamber of Commerce.
