Party in the Park: Free Kids Activities


Free Kids Event & Entertainment!
Saturday, June 16th, from 2 to 4 p.m.
Lehigh Park Pavilion

Party in the Park is on Saturday, June 16th, from 2 to 4 p.m., and open to children aged 3 to 8 years and their caregivers.

Party in the Park is the festival’s centerpiece when it comes to family fun. More than 300 kiddos and their parents attended our event last year. Generous local sponsorship ensures this event is free and, therefore, open to all.


Please note the Party's change of location this year! We'll be under the Lehigh pavilion.
Parents might also want to check out the popular kiddie parade, held earlier in the morning. Participants decorate their bikes, trikes and wagons and parade from City Hall down Dale Avenue to Dickinson House, where refreshments and prizes are handed out.

The Party in the Park is only one part of the larger Summer Fun Fest, which boasts a
fantastic midway and carnival at its core. North American Midway—one of the Midwest’s top productions, focused on safe, family fun—will be offering wristband specials each day. For $25, festivalgoers can ride unlimited rides—a perfect Party in the Park encore!


In fact, there's all sorts of fun going on in Oglesby on Saturday, from city-wide yard sales to the library's used book sale, from a Cruise-In at the Rootbeer Stand to a rockin' teen dance party.  And, of course, lots of free musical entertainment, including The Golden Voice of Elvis, The Neverly Brothers and RockStar Rodeo.
