Do Division Family Fun Fest Details

Pony rides, face painting, rocking kids' music

Chicago, IL – This year the Do Division Family Fun Fest has expanded to two blocks on Hoyne between Division and Potomac. New this year, come and learn about bees. We'll have fun bee facts throughout the event. For example, did you know bees can fly up to 15 miles an hour and honey never spoils? Visit the Christy Weber Urban Bee Hive tent where you'll get to observe bees – behind plexiglass, of course. Plus answer questions in a quiz about bees and win a prize from Building Blocks. (Hint: you'll find the answers on our activity tents.)

Also new is the Cat n Mouse Game Store's Game tent including a yo-yo demonstration on Saturday. And the Building Blocks famous Carnival Wheel with fabulous prizes.

We're bringing back many of the popular activities including The Easel Art Studio Craft Tent, punk rock hair styling by Psycho Baby with nail polishes by Juko nails (nails Saturday only), face painting, cookie decorating, a dunk tank, the Children's Learning Place Toddler Zone (with a changing station and nursing zone), a bounce house, and pony rides (both Saturday and Sunday).

Plus non-stop entertainment on the family stage along with super fun exhibitors.
