As all parents know, spring fever is a very real thing—and it tends to infect our kiddos the most.
Fight back against this seasonal affliction with a certain cure: Chicago Parent's Spring Playdate.
On April 10 (10 a.m.-3 p.m.), Chicago Parent brings together of all our favorite people—our trusted advertisers, most entertaining performers, and you, our faithful readers—for a day of play, music and fun for everyone from the sweetest babies to your too-cool tweens. And be sure to stop by and say hi to our editorial team!
It all takes place at the perfectly manicured, oh-so-green (turf) fields of Northbrook's Athletico Center (1900 Old Willow Road).
Kids will enjoy bounce houses, train rides and sports challenges, in addition to festival favorites like elaborate face painting, epic balloon twisting, and some visits from your kids' favorite characters (hint: their names rhyme with Fanna and Schmelsa).
At the entertainment stage, you can show off your dance moves along with Miss Jamie from the Farm or Ben Tatar and The Tatar Tots, hear stories from Chicago's own Storybook Mom, or laugh 'til it hurts, thanks to the funny folks at Storytown Improv.
You'll also get to meet some of the advertisers from these very pages, who not only bring helpful information for moms and dads, but also fun activities (think games, crafts and dino fun) for your littles.
All of that, combined with a day out of your stuffy house, guarantees a day that will vanquish spring fever for good ... until next year, at least.
Advance tickets are $4 for kids under 2, $8 for kids 2-14, parents are free!
