Friday, July 12
Family Fun Fair


Time: 5-8 p.m. FREE 
Location: Elmhurst History Museum Grounds



Remember those warm summer nights at local amusement parks like Dispensa's Kiddie Kingdom and Kiddieland? We're bringing back the old-school amusement park experience with a fun-filled evening for families on the EHM grounds. Kids can ride a trackless train or mini-Ferris wheel, play Kiddieland Kats and other carnival games, and take aim at the dunk tank. Activity stations include marble roller coaster runs and an amusement park-themed craft to take home. High energy live music provided by School of Rock and ice cream for sale by Kilwin's. Bring a picnic dinner and lawn blanket and enjoy complimentary popcorn and cotton candy while supplies last.

PLEASE NOTE: Our parking lot will be closed during this event. Please use nearby City of Elmhurst Parking Decks or street parking--walk, bike or ride the Explore Elmhurst Trolley (stops at York & Park just west of the museum).
