River Grove, Ill. – Families are in for a treat when Triton College’s annual Fall Family Fun Fest returns to the college’s Botanical Gardens on Saturday, Sept. 27.
From games and activities to fall favorites, such as the ever-popular pumpkin patch and straw maze, families will enjoy a harvest of fun so much so, they won’t want to “leaf.”
The free community event will have face painting, mask making, cupcake decorating, an obstacle course, Fun with Legos™, family portraits to capture the experience, and also back by popular demand, Maggie the Cow, which provides children with the learning opportunity of “milking” a mechanical cow.
There will also be pumpkins for sale, plus a giant pumpkin will be on display for families to take pictures with!
Attendees can get physical with Chicago-style stepping and get a lesson in fire safety by venturing through a Fire Safety House supplied by the River Grove Fire Department that is also bringing a fire engine to the fest.
Back again will be The Great Triton Treasure Hunt that encourages families to work together to figure out clues that takes them to various areas around Triton’s campus. Each child who completes the challenge and visits all four locations will receive a prize.
