Join State Senator Heather Steans and me for an afternoon of family fun at the 28th Annual 49th Ward BACK TO SCHOOL PICINIC! A family tradition since 1991, the picnic will be held on Sunday, August 26th, 12:00 noon to 4:00 p.m., in Loyola Park at Farwell and the Lake.
We’re serving up plenty of free food and refreshing soft drinks and offering a host of games and prizes.
We’ll have bingo for the seniors and face painting and puppet shows for the kids, a DJ spinning your favorite tunes, dance contests, a moonwalk and other large, inflatable carnival toys. And most of all, we’re giving away backpacks filled with free school supplies to families!
The world famous Jesse White Tumbling Team headlines the picnic with a stunning performance of their aerobatics.
The Tumblers have been thrilling audiences since 1959. Their acrobatic performances can be seen during half-time shows for the National Basketball Association, the National Football League and Major League Baseball games. Many thanks to Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin for sponsoring Tumblers’ appearance again this year.
In short, it will be a fun day for EVERYONE! So stop by even if your kids are grown or you’ve never had kids and enjoy a beautiful Sunday afternoon in one of Chicago’s most gorgeous lakefront parks.
For more information, please reply to this e-mail or call my Ward Service Office at 773-338-5796.
Heather and I look forward to seeing you on Sunday, August 26th!
