Family Festival Fun in Ward Park

Despite an uncertain forecast, scores of River North families flocked to Ward Park for the RNRA’s annual Spring Family Festival. Laughter filled the air as the kids enjoyed flower planting, games, crafts, art, music, face painting, bubbles and balloon animals under mostly sunny skies in the beautiful riverfront setting. We sincerely appreciate the many local businesses and organizations whose activities and/or giveaways made the childrens’ experience so special. And a special thank you to our amazing volunteers, Marion Bryer, Margaret Nagala, Gina Spata, Stephanie Westerkamp, Nikki Sclafani and Nancy Kalchbrenner, without whom this wonderful event would not have been possible.
