Saturday's storms passed through just as Easter Seals kicked off 1st Annual Tinley Summer Fest.
The rain stopped and the sun came out Saturday just in time for the kick off of Tinley Summer Fest. The event was hosted by Easter Seals of metropolitan Chicago, an organization that provides services for people with disabilities or other special needs. Saturday's festival featured activities for kids and adults alike. While the little ones played games like ringing a monkey-on-a-stick or digging for dinosaurs the adults could relax in a Beer Tent and enjoy live music. The Easter Seals Therapeutic Day School in Tinley Park hopes to make this fund raising fest an annual event.

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.
