Event Description

The Fall Fest is our annual fundraiser and the money that is raised during the Fall Fest supports the events that we offer throughout the year. The Fall Fest is a fun day for families to enjoy all that fall has to offer. We will have a Pony Wheel, Petting Zoo, Pumpkin Patch, Face Painting, Refreshments, and Music. It will take place this year from 11am - 4pm on Saturday, October 13 and Sunday, October 14. In past years, we have had approximately 1500-2000 people attend throughout the weekend.

Organization: Athletic Field Park Advisory Council

We are a small group who are dedicated to supporting our local neighborhood park and helping to unite our neighborhood community by encouraging families to utilize the park, keep the neighborhood clean, and offer children safe and fun place to spend time. We provide free events throughout the spring & summer such as Easter Egg Hunt (for young children), Movies in the Park (for all ages), Movin' to the Music (music, chalk, bubbles at the playground - geared toward young children), Summer Dance (music & dance lessons - for all ages), and Cleaning up the Parkways (volunteer opportunity for all ages). We also financially support improvements to the park and help fund the needs of park programs.

Driving: If driving, take the Addison exit from the Kennedy & the park is located just east of the highway.

Transit: Close to the Blue Line to Addison stop and the 152 Addison bus.
