County Fair and other DuPage News

Coming to a fairgrounds near you.... the DuPage County Fair July22nd-26
Adults are $10, Kids 3 and up are $3 (ride tickets are extra)
(Click here for a $2 coupon)

I was 9months pregnant at last year's fair and we had a ball! We loved the carousel and the petting zoo and, of course, all the yummy treats!

Want to go and then blog about it? We would love to see the fair through your eyes! Send us your thoughts and pics.

Speaking of carnivals... Would you travel halfway across the globe to work at local fairs for the summer? These two girls did.
(BTW- the Glendale Heights Summerfest Festival is going on now through Sunday if you want to meet these two ladies for yourself.)

Looking for other free fun options, check out this list of some funky free concerts around DuPage County this summer. I'm thinking the Sting Rays 50's/60's cover band looks fun!

Want yummy ice cream? Here is a map of all the best ice cream places in the western 'burbs. You can even add your favorite to the list or just take other people's word for it.

Other News...
Could be trouble for the main Pace Bus route that travels through Dupage County. With so few options for public transportation in the suburbs, it would be a shame to see this go away. But it seems as if that decision is up to the Wheaton City Council.

But even in times of financial strain, the United Way of Dupage County is still working miracles for those in need in our community.
