"We came up for the car show and the food smelled good," longtime Vernon Hills residents Ann Marie and Ed Brown said, so they decided to get some butterfly chips. The Browns have been coming to the annual festival for 14 years.

For kids, there was entertainment under the big top including a free magic show by longtime Vernon Hills resident and professional magician Al Brodsky. Other things available for children included face painting, foam and sand art, beading, flip-flop decorating and a balloon artist.

The Farm and Sister Hazel performed on the main stage in the evening with food, rides and carnival games rounding out the day.

The celebration continues Sunday at 1 p.m. at Century Park. For more information visit www.vernonhills.org.
