Super Heroes are coming to Mundelein!
This Sunday Lake Count.I.Con and the Mundelein Business Alliance are hosting the first ever Mundelein Super Hero Day and Little Lake County is going to be there! For one day, super heroes young and old, big and small, will converge on Mundelein for a day of family-friendly fun and activities. This FREE event will be held on the grassy knoll at Taco Burrito Express from 2:00 – 7:00 p.m.
The activities include a variety of super hero and comic book themed activities: face painting, crafts, giveaways and sales. There will also be music and live entertainment. Keumgang Martial Arts will put on a choreographed fight scene and there will be a costume contest. Don’t have a costume? No worries! Little Lake County will be on hand helping little super heroes harness their power with super hero cuffs, and Mundelein Makers will be helping them make capes.
Professional comic book artist Chuck Fiala will be at the Funky Catz Comic booth from 2:00 – 6:00 p.m. with original art for sale and custom commissions being done on site. Chuck’s art has been featured in many DC publications including Looney Tunes, Cool World and Teen Titans; he has also provided artwork for Warner Brothers and Disney, and is the co-creator of the web-comic Sword and Sarcasm. Kids in costume that stop by Funky Cats booth can get a raffle ticket for a piece of original artwork.
That’s not all! At 3:00 p.m. there will be a parade along Hawley street to showcase all the costumes.
