Your family can enjoy a getaway without going far from home at the 11th annual Island in the City Festival, Thursday, July 7-Sunday, July 10 at Overhill Avenue between Wilson and Lawrence in Norridge.

"It's a family friendly event that really brings the community together as they enjoy carnival rides, games, a business expo, great entertainment and a diverse selection of food vendors," said Monica Slonski, administrative services manager for the Norridge Park District, which sponsors the event.

 

That huge array of food choices includes chicken tenders, baked clams, deep fried Oreos and almost everything else you can imagine.

The festival runs from 5-10 p.m. Thursday; 5-11 p.m. Friday; 1-11 p.m. Saturday and 1-10 p.m. Sunday. The prices for daily wristbands at the carnival hadn't been set at press time although a 4-Day Mega-Pass is available online for $60.

 

There's nonstop live entertainment for free throughout the festival with Sunday dedicated to country music.
