  • Touch-a-Truck;
  • Hoof, Woof, Meow activity;
  • Carnival Games;
  • Obstacle Course;

  • Vendors and food and drink sales.

Little Lake County is coming with some fun new animal-themed games and activities. We will also have some of our Kindness Begins with Me t-shirts for sale ($10 adults $5 for children) and all funds will be donated to Busy Brains Children’s Museum. But that’s not all! Thanks to our friends at Britax we have a brand new B-Ready Stroller ($499 value) to send home with someone who comes!

Anyone who comes to the festival can enter to win at the Little Lake County booth and we will draw a winner at 3:30 p.m. An afternoon of family fun and a chance to win one of the best strollers on the market? I’m sold, but if you need more reasons to come:

  • Busy Brains will collecting items for local animal shelters (which also gets you a discounted admission);

Busy Brains Children’s Museum was founded in 2004 and has served area families with traveling exhibitions. They’ve been at many Little Lake County events, including our 2016 and 2017 playground tours. In 2013, the museum received a donation of a building and property in downtown Lake Villa, and the museum plans to open its doors after it raises the funds to renovate the building and establish an operating budget. Busy Brains Children’s Museum is a member of the Association of Children’s Museums, Illinois Association of Museums, and the Lindenhurst/Lake Villa Chamber of Commerce.
