This Weekend: Taste of Orland and Movie Night

Nightlife, festivals, charitable and kid friendly events are happening this weekend, August 4-7, in the Orland, Palos, Tinley and Oak Forest areas.

Just like when searching for the Terracotta Warriors and Horses of Emperor Qin Shi Huang, finding something do for the weekend takes a little digging. Fortunately, Patch has already done the dirty work for you. So, put down your shovel, lay aside the brushes and return that excavator - this weekend's events have been unearthed and classified.
