Fall Fest

September 29, 2018, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


The leaves are changing, air is getting cooler and we are ready to celebrate fall. Families are invited to make a festive scarecrow to take home, don’t worry, we will provide the hay and instructions, you bring the clothes. Tinley Junction Golf Course will be holding their Ghostly Golf event; families can purchase a round of golf and play at the hauntingly decorated course and receive a pumpkin! After golf, bring your pumpkin to the decorating area! A bonfire and roasted marshmallows will cap off your night. Bring your blankets and lawn chairs for a short family cartoon shown on our giant inflatable screen on the ballfield at 8:30 pm.
