Eyes to the Skies Festival, June 29 – July 3

Lisle’s annual Eyes to the Skies Festival.

I know a couple of people who have gone to this and said it was really neat… hot air balloons, crafts, carnival, food, games and fireworks every night.

Check out Eyes to the Skies HERE



*** UPDATE ***

Me and the family checked it out today.  Use your own mapping to arrive to the festival ground as their directions online weren’t correct for me (coming from SOUTH).  Also, they didn’t really have signage so just mapquest it to Lisle HS.  Also, note… hot air balloons are ONLY there 6am and at 6pm through fireworks.  So that was a big bummer for us so we’ll have to try again next year.   Carnival is expensive… you can buy crazy unlimited pass or $20 for 21 tickets, $40 for 44 tickets or $1 each.  The lumberjack show was cute… my two five year olds enjoyed it.  The “crafts” area is weak and can be annoying with 3 potential gutter places trying to get you to listen to them and the people from the mercedes raffle were annoying.  They had some fun characters at the carnival (I mean people acting silly, not real characters).  A decent amount of rides for the young kids…note, many had requirement of 42 inches.  Overall, I would recommend it 🙂
