On May 18, families across Des Plaines came together to enjoy free activities, a fashionable parade, and fun in the sun at the 6th annual Spring Fun Fair at Mountain View Adventure Center and in the Juno Lighting parking lot. State Representative Martin J. Moylan and Officer Michael Meyers kicked off the 11th annual Pooch, Pet & Pedal Parade with prizes awarded for Best Theme, Best Wheels, Best Helmet, Best Tail Wagger, and more. Kids ran the 100 Yard Dash, bounced in the inflatable obstacle course, climbed the Lattof Wall, and practiced safe "driving" in Safety Town. The Des Plaines Healthy Community Foundation fit children for free bike helmets, Crime Stoppers made fresh popped corn, and Master Gardeners taught children about the importance of earthworms. Across the street, the Des Plaines Chamber of Commerce sponsored the popular Touch a Truck event. Children climbed aboard City of Des Plaines Emergency Management vehicles, ambulances, police cars, and public works trucks, as well as big rigs from local businesses and the Park District. "This is a wonderful event for families," said Linda Traina, Superintendent of Recreation for the Des Plaines Park District. "It's great to see so many come out to enjoy the park, the weather, and learn about everything the City has to offer."
