Vintage Baseball Game
Elmhurst College Mall, 190 S. Prospect Ave.
Join the Elmhurst community for an old-fashioned baseball game played by the wildly different rules of 1858. Learn to cheer and jeer in fine Victorian fashion as two Elmhurst clubs, chock-full of local celebrities, play for your favor. Bring a picnic basket and lawn chairs for a family-friendly game played by true sportsmen from an era of wooden bats and iron men. Fun for all ages...huzzah! Games take place in front of Hammerschmidt Chapel on the Elmhurst College Mall. Free parking available in campus parking lots.

Family Fun Fair
Time: 2 p.m. FREE
Location: Elmhurst History Museum Grounds
Remember those warm summer nights at local amusement parks like Dispensa's Kiddie Kingdom and Kiddieland? We're bringing back the old-school amusement park experience with a fun-filled evening for families on the EHM grounds. Kids can ride a trackless train, play Kiddieland Kats and other carnival games, ride the mini-Ferris wheel, and take aim at the dunk tank. Test your skills making marble roller coaster runs and make a roller-coaster-themed craft to take home. High energy live music provided by School of Rock and ice cream for sale by Kilwin's. Bring a picnic dinner and lawn blanket and enjoy complimentary popcorn and cotton candy while supplies last.
