Get ready to welcome spring and let the good times bloom with the City of West Chicago’s annual Blooming Fest event. Downtown West Chicago will come alive with the sights, sounds, and scents of the new season as part of the City’s annual spring celebration on Saturday, May 20, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. This festival is a great opportunity for residents and visitors of all ages to enjoy the warmer seasonal weather while supporting the local community.
One of the main attractions of the event is the large plant sale hosted by the West Chicago Garden Club where attendees will have the chance to view and purchase over 5,000 plants. While gardening enthusiasts will enjoy developing their green thumbs at the plant sale, visitors can also browse through more than 50 craft, garden, and food vendors.
Live music will also be featured, with musical artists Dillon Riley and Leroy Winn performing for attendees. Event-goers can enjoy the performances while soaking up the spring atmosphere, or while viewing the City’s annual Art Banner Exhibit, which will be on display along Main Street and Galena Street.
The family-friendly event also offers several areas designed specifically for younger attendees, including the kidZone, featuring a bubble show, face painter, balloonist, and other exciting activities sponsored by various community organizations. Children and adults alike will also enjoy the Animal Quest Animal Show, which will feature exotic creatures for everyone to learn about and view in person.
The City’s Blooming Fest event is a great way to celebrate the arrival of spring while supporting local businesses and organizations. Visitors of all ages can expect a fun-filled day of plant shopping, live music, and family-friendly activities.
