Weekend Events: August 4-6, 2017

This Thursday, August 3 is a fun-filled day at Burr Ridge Village Center with a Chalk Fest in the morning, Explore a Truck in the afternoon, and Movie on the Green in the evening. A firetruck, squad car, garbage truck, mixing truck, tractor, and public works truck are expected to be there (unless they get called to duty) from 2-4pm. Bring a box at 7pm so your kids can make a car with the Indian Prairie Public Library to watch the movie in! The movie Cars starts at 8pm.

This weekend is packed full of fun options! Check out all of the events for each day below. You can even add the events you are interested in to your personal calendar (Google or iCal)! I do it all the time and it’s a great way to plan exciting days with your family.
