Families with young children will find plenty to do and see at EcoFest, including a free Birds of Prey show given by the Northern Illinois Raptor Center. The event will offer eco-friendly games, crafts, and interactive conservation exhibits. EcoFest is 10:30–12:30PM at the Riverwalk Grand Pavilion, east of Centennial Beach near the Jaycee Playground. The Birds of Prey Show takes place from 11AM to noon.
Kids and adults are also invited to Centennial Beach for the Pre-Season Plunge, either to swim or just to cheer on the swimmers. Following the plunge, Centennial Beach lifeguards will demonstrate their skills, including safety drills and behind-the-scenes training routines. The festivities will include complimentary beverages and snacks and a chance to win a 2012 Beach membership. The Plunge is 1PM sharp.
