Trinity High School students will participate in its second-annual “Taste of North Avenue” event on July 24, which affords young Blazers, who come from 60 ZIP codes and 140 different elementary schools, an opportunity to learn more about River Forest and many nearby local attractions.

Attendees of the all-girls Catholic high school will start by walking up Jackson Avenue, and hearing about the history of the school, of River Forest itself, and participating in ice breakers to get to know one another. Their first stop will be at Fresh Thyme Grocery Store, 7501 W. North Ave., where they will receive a goodie bag with healthy snacks. Staff will also teach them a short lesson on nutrition.

Students will then proceed across North Avenue to Elmwood Park’s “Restaurant Row,” stopping at Alpine Subs, New Star Chinese, Armand’s Pizza, Massa, Johnnie’s Italian Ice and more.

Bon appetit, Blazers.
