Students from schools in the 11th Ward have gathered at McGuane Park in a rally for peace.

They came from several of Chicago's neighborhoods, and they are united in one message.

The group calls it a "peace walk into summer." Hundreds of area kids and teens were joined by parents and teachers for the march.

Students gathered for musical and spoken-word performances. It's a happy occasion to remind everyone in the community the hot summer months should be about fun, not violence.

The peace rally ended Wednesday morning with a balloon release and picnic lunch.
