Fight to the Finish 5k
A 5K race of extreme obstacles and challenging terrain to benefit Children’s Hospital of Illinois. The patients and families helped through Children’s Hospital face obstacles every day, some small and some life changing. As you pull yourself up a brick wall, crawl through the mud and fight to get through the water first, you’ll be reminded of those challenges. Funds raised from this event will be used to support the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and the Pediatric Healthy Living Program. Join us for the race, but plan for a fun day full of activities. There is something for everyone. Make your way through the vendor area on your way to enjoy a bite to eat from several local restaurants. Young visitors will enjoy the kid's activity area! This section opens at 9AM and admission is $5 per child (free to those who are racing in the Kids Run). The kid's activity area includes a hula hoop contest, healthy eating station, healthy activity station, face painting and glitter tattoos by the Zoo Lady & the Zoo Crew.
Old English Faire
Sound ye trumpets, shine thine armour, sharpen ye olde sword, lace thy corsets and braid thy long, shining tresses. Gather thy children and challenge their imaginations with tales from ye Middle Ages. The Olde English Faire returns for the fourth time to Wildlife Prairie State Park on June 20, 21 & 22, 2014. This fundraiser for Wildlife Prairie State Park pays tribute to the sights, sounds, aromas, speech and activities of the Middle Ages. Come cheer on sword fighters, jousters and archers as they compete in mock battles. Take in the tales, tricks and tunes of roving story tellers, magicians and musicians. Watch the acrobats, musical acts and comedians amongst the flora and fauna of the park. You can shop with our fine artisans for treasures galore. There will be plenty of hearty food and beverages offered throughout the Park, as well as shaded areas to rest, restroom facilities and free parking.
