Dan Green’s Pig in the Park…

Pig in the ParkFriends, family and neighbors will be gathering at Fontana’s Reid Park this Saturday, August 30th to celebrate Dan Green’s Pig in the Park, a wonderful community event that will allow you to enjoy fun and fellowship while raising money to support Children’s Oncology Services and the Fontana Parks.

The fun begins at 4:00 p.m. with a kid’s area filled with tons of stuff to keep the kids busy. A 70’ obstacle course, bounce houses, water tag, a petting zoo and pony rides are the main attractions, but face painting, balloon animals and an animal show at 5:30 p.m. promise to be just as much fun. Please note that the kid’s area will close at 8:00 p.m.

The beer tent and live music also start at 4:00 p.m. and will remain open until 10:00 p.m. The entertainment will include performances by Mac & John, Rock Boxx and the Lake Geneva House of Music.

Food service begins at 4:00 p.m. with 2 options.  Kid’s tickets are $3.00 and include a hot dog, chips, a cookie and a juice box.  Adult tickets are $10.00 and include a pulled pork sandwich or hot dog, baked beans, chips, corn, dessert and a non-alcoholic beverage.

This festival is named for our friend Dan Green.  He was a Fontana Park Commissioner, a Fontana volunteer firefighter, a contractor for the Illinois Department of Transportation and a real estate agent at Keefe Real Estate.  He was not only a great guy, but he was very devoted to the community he lived in.  Please consider taking some time this Saturday to stop at Reid Park in Fontana and show your support for the community that Dan loved and one that he worked so hard to make a nicer place for everyone.

Lake Geneva is definitely paradise and you can find some great Cheeseburgers here too!  So get your “fins up” and be ready for a party because Jimmy Buffett is making his annual appearance at Alpine Valley this Saturday, August 23rd.

This event is more than just a concert, it is an all-day marathon.  So gather up your Hawaiian print shirts, coconut bras, coolers and anything else you’ll need to partake in the Pre-concert tailgate festivities.  Make no mistake, this is no ordinary tailgate party and you can be guaranteed that every group there is committed to bringing their “A” game including homemade Tiki bars, kiddy pools with rubber duckies, lots of sand and margaritas everywhere.

The concert starts at 8:00 p.m. and his fiercely loyal fans and never disappointed.  Tickets are still available.
