A party broke out today in Wrigleyville

And as she stood next to several Chicago firefighters while welcoming a crowd of several hundred, The Food Network’s queen of convenient cooking, Rachael Ray, looked tiny!

All along Sheffield and Waveland avenues, Ray was hosting  “Rachael Big Block Party” complete with food tents, ferris wheel and a performance by Kool & the Gang.

Seen noshing near the Frontera Grill tent: Bill and Giuliana Rancic. Bill is known by most “The Apprentice” Season One, and his wife is a host on E! News.

Helping coordinate the event was Chicago Events, the same outfit that helps the Cubs put on the annual Race to Wrigley 5K.
