Naperville's Last Fling setting up for end-of-summer fun
Final preparations are in the works for a summer send-off in Naperville at the 50th annual Last Fling.
The festival begins at 5 p.m. Friday with a carnival, business expo and concerts.
It continues from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, including activities like a Labor Day parade, two running races, eating contests, a Disney star meet-and-greet, a skaters' picnic and two days of disc-catching contests for dogs and their handlers.
"We have 15 to 20 different special events that everyone rants and raves about each and every year," said John Trojanowski, Last Fling executive director.
Trojanowski said the carnival along Jackson Avenue and the main stage at Rotary Hill both were set up Wednesday.
That means finishing touches can be put in place Thursday before members of the Naperville Jaycees, the club hosting the festival, welcome revelers to the unofficial end of summer.
