You’ll be Amused at the Family Fun Fair – Elmhurst Toyota Dealer
The Elmhurst History Museum continues its amusement park themed summer events on Friday, July 12 with the Family Fun Fair. Relive the summer nights of the Chicago area’s greatest amusement parks, including Kiddieland and Dispensa’s Kiddie Kingdom. This educational and entertaining experience will take place on the museum grounds. Arrive at 5 p.m. and enjoy the festivities until 8 p.m. At Elmhurst Toyota, we’re grateful for the Elmhurst History Museum’s many activities that provide opportunities to learn about Chicagoland’s history.
The Family Fun Fair will provide a nostalgic look at the Chicago area’s most popular amusement parks. You’ll learn about the Ferris Wheel at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exhibition and enjoy the many artifacts and interactive displays at the event. Kids can ride a trackless train, knock down the Kiddieland Kats, ride the mini-Ferris wheel, try their hand at the shooting gallery, and play a host of other carnival games, including football frenzy, ring toss and go fish. There’s even an old-fashioned dunk tank. Roller coaster fans are encouraged to try the marble roller coaster and make a roller coaster-themed craft. A balloon twisting artist will be at the fair, creating balloons to delight the kids.
School of Rock will provide the music at the Family Fun Fair, and Kilwin’s will help keep things cool with ice cream for sale. So, pack a picnic basket, bring a lawn blanket and head out to the Family Fun Fair on July 12. There will be plenty of free popcorn and cotton candy.
The Family Fun Fair is sponsored by Classic Cinemas/York Theatre, Suburban Bank & Trust, and The Marke of Elmhurst by Opus.
