MEDIA: GREAT PHOTO AND VIDEO OPPORTUNITY!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE SEPT. 13, 2013
Families are in for a treat when Triton College’s annual Fall Family Fun Fest returns to the college’s Botanical Gardens on Saturday, Sept. 28.
From games and activities to fall favorites, such as the ever-popular pumpkin patch and straw maze, families will enjoy a harvest of fun so much so, they won’t want to “leaf.”
The free community event will have face painting, mask making, cupcake decorating, an obstacle course, Fun with Legos™, family portraits to capture the experience, and also back by popular demand, Maggie the Cow, which provides children with the learning opportunity of “milking” a mechanical cow.
There will also be pumpkins for sale, plus a giant pumpkin weighing nearly 270 pounds will be on display for families to take pictures with!
New this year, attendees can get physical with Zumba demonstrations, yell “Loteria” playing Spanish Bingo and stop, drop and roll in a Fire Safety House supplied by the River Grove Fire Department that is also bringing a fire engine to the fest.
Also new this year will be The Great Triton Treasure Hunt that will encourage families to work together to figure out clues that will take them to various areas around Triton’s campus. Each child who completes the challenge and visits all seven locations will receive a prize.
Fall Family Fun Fest is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is open free to the public. Food and beverages will be sold by Triton's Hospitality program. For more information, call (708) 456-0300, Ext. 3290 or visit www.triton.edu.
