Event details

Kick off the summer with the first of this year’s Fun & Food Trucks events. Eat eclectic local foods in the preserve while having a blast participating in a variety of activities. This event will offer something for the entire family, including live music, outdoor lawn games and a bounce house for the kids, as well as delicious bites from Lil' Deb'sLife's a Slice and Mr. Salty's Popcorn as well as The Dock serving adult beverages.

Fun & Food Trucks is supported by Old National Bank. Thanks to their sponsorship, the Forest Preserve will be giving away Crumbl mini cookies to the first 500 visitors. In addition, Crumbl will be on site selling cookies.
