Festivals, activities, concerts and sporting events this 4th of July weekend in Orland, Palos, Tinley, and Oak Forest.
The magic 8-ball has nothing on us. When asking whether you should get out and do something this weekend, our answer is always "yes - definitely." So put aside your stamp collection, leave the DIY projects for a rainy day and grab your SPF 50 sun block (it was a long winter). Patch will keep you going all weekend long. This weekend's forecast - hot with a good chance of fireworks. Your patriotic needs are easily fulfilled with the Oak Fest and the long list of places to celebrate Independence Day in the South 'Burbs. If that's not enough fresh air for you, become one with nature at Lake Katherine or grab fluffy and fido for the Orland Pet Parade. Oak Fest June 29 - July 4 | 159th St & Central Ave, Oak Forest, IL 60452 Oak Fest will fill …
