The View from 101 York – July, 2014

LW Reedy has been serving the Elmhurst community and surrounding areas since 1951. As the largest locally-owned real estate agency in Elmhurst, we have a passion for local news and events. Here’s our view of the community for this month, from our perch at 101 York in the heart of downtown Elmhurst.

Every Tuesday in July
Fun & Games Program at the Elmhurst Historical Museum

Enjoy a relaxing afternoon with the kids in the shade of the museum’s huge trees. Bring a blanket and picnic lunch to enjoy either before or during the free Summer Fun & Games program between 11:30 am and 1:00 pm. The Museum will provide lemonade and a sweet treat while supplies last.

Every Tuesday Evening in July
Concerts in Wilder Park

You will find any kind of music you want at the concert series in Wilder Park. Support your community band or orchestra or relax to soothing Chamber music in the Wedding Garden. An evening of free music is just what you need to take advantage of a warm summer evening.

Every Wednesday Evening in July
Block to Block Party by Elmhurst City Centre

Take a walk around downtown Elmhurst and see what our town has to offer. Enjoy free music and specials from many of the stores and restaurants and check out the Family Fun Stops along the way. Stop by our office and window shop some of our favorite listings.

Geocaching 101 at the Lizzadro Museum of Lapidary Art

Experience the latest craze in outdoor treasure hunting. Using a GPS-enabled device, learn to navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates to find a container or “geocache” with a riddle and coordinates to the next clue. The group that finds all of the geocaches wins a prize. It is appropriate for kids aged 9 years old all the way to adults. This adventure starts at 10 am at the museum. The cost is $10 per person, $8 for museum members. Reservations are required. For more information, please call (630) 833-1616.

Expose the family to a good old-fashioned country fair, right here in our own backyard at the DuPage County Fairgrounds, 2015 Manchester Road in Wheaton. Ticket prices are $10 per person, with children from 3 to 12 and there are specials on Wednesday, July 27. Hours are 8 am to 11 pm daily. Watch Monster Truck, listen to free music, check out the agricultural and 4-H exhibits or shop for souvenirs in the air-conditioned Fair Cafe on Friday, Saturday or Sunday from 10 am to 10 pm. There will be beer and wine tastings, as well as, a carnival for the kids. It truly is fun for the whole family.\
