2010 DuPage Festival Calendar Naperville, Wheaton, and More…

There are a number of festivals and events hosted throughout DuPage County this summer.  Below is a list of local events that you won’t want to miss.  More details will be forthcoming as the dates for these approach.

I highly recommend Naperville’s Ribfest and Lisle’s Eyes to the Skies.  If there are only two fests you hit all summer, these are the ones to go to. It’s going to be a beautiful summer! Get out and support the local DuPage economy while having a great time with family and friends. See you out there 🙂
