Street Festival set to attract big crowds

August 19, 2013 by  

The residents of Palatine are gearing up for a weekend of fun, with the Downtown Palatine Street Fest set to start in the area on Friday.

The Festival will feature a wide range of events and activities, with something to appeal for every member of the family. There will be music from local artists such as Sixteen Candles, Purple Apple, Tiffany Atword, Ralph Covert, and the Beatle’s tribute band Brit Beat.

Children at the event have also been catered for, with a designated Kids’ Zone on-site offering skateboarding demonstrations, martial arts displays, and a travelling reptile exhibition.

Athletic attendees are expected to jump at the chance to get involved in Cyclefest as well. This activity, for which entry will cost $25, will help provide funds for bicycle-related infrastructure improvements in the area. Information on this cause, as well as many other non-profit groups, will be available at the event in the form of flyers and brochures. Organizers are thought to be working with local printing companies to prepare these materials.

The festival is likely to attract visitors from all over Illinois, including those in nearby towns such as Rolling Meadows and Vernon Hills. Flyer and banner printing could also be used to boost publicity and keep these communities informed.

The Downtown Palatine Street Fest is set to start on Friday and will run until Sunday afternoon. Cyclefest will be taking place on Saturday. More information can be found on the Street Fest website.
