Woodfield Mall is inviting families to celebrate the 74th anniversary of the movie, "The Wizard of Oz," from noon-2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21.

The free celebration will let families slip on a pair of ruby slippers and take the yellow brick road all the way to the Emerald City, to celebrate an iconic cinematic masterpiece. The celebration will be held in the mall's Grand Court.

Hosted by Simon Kidgits Club and Warner Bros., the event will feature a variety of "Wizard of Oz"-inspired activities, such as hands-on crafts, coloring, character cutout photo opportunities, giveaways and more.
