A Little Time and a Keyboard: Wednesday Weekend Wind Up

Wednesday Weekend Wind Up

Wednesday, August 8, 2012

I can't believe that it is already time to start thinking about the weekend. Where does all of the time go? Before I know it, my daughter will be back in school and all of her activities will start up in full force, so time will really go fast then!

This weekend is a pretty big one in Arlington Heights. We have our Mane Event on Friday from 5PM-10:30PM and the Taste of Arlington Heights on Saturday from 3PM-10:30PM. Both events are in the downtown area of Arlington Heights. We have been going to the Mane Event for years. There will be free activities for kids. In the past, there have been balloon artists, pony rides, inflatables, and more! Many of the village's downtown restaurants will have booths, so there will be plenty of food to choose from. You can also head to Arlington Heights the next night for the Taste of Arlington Heights for more food choices and some great music.

If you are out shopping at Deer Park on Saturday, there will be a Jazz Patio from 12PM-5PM. Besides live jazz performances, there will also be a face painter and balloon artist. The event is free!

Aug 11&12 the Chicago Botanic Garden will be hosting a Kite Festival from 11AM-4PM. There will be kite performances and workshops. Parking at the Garden is $20 (free for members). The event is free!

Also, Aug 11&12, the Glen Town Center will be hosting their Art at the Glen art festival from 10AM-6PM.

Veggie Fest will be held in Naperville Aug 11&12 from 11AM-8PM. There will be demonstrations, vendors, live music, and kids' activities. Admission is free. The festival will be at 4S 175 Naperville-Wheaton Rd in Naperville (60563). The Fest is on the grounds of the Science of Spirituality Meditation Center.
