The rain couldn't keep local business leaders from rubbing elbows Thursday night.

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

Members of the Greater Reading Chamber of Commerce came out for the annual picnic.

Organizers say the event is a great way for people to stay connected and even make some new friends.

Some familiar WFMZ faces were on hand for the fun, including Ryan Hughes and Dan Moscaritolo.
