Despite a busy holiday weekend, there were no falls to report at Starved Rock State Park.

Conservation Police Sgt. Phil Wire says they did hand out 27 tickets counting Saturday and Sunday at the park. Four of them were for having small amounts of pot while the rest of the tickets were either for alcohol or being caught off the trails.

Governor Bruce Rauner and his wife hiked about five miles at Starved Rock Saturday according to Wire. While walking with the governor, police nabbed a dozen other hikers for being off the trails.
