The holidays are fast approaching, and as usual, the Elmhurst area is offering up plenty of opportunities to celebrate!

adventuretosanata.jpgThis year, Oakbrook Center presents “Adventure to Santa!”  This one of a kind experience will take you along the journey to find Santa in the North Pole with Shrek and pals.  The exhibit is just 15 minutes long, and at the end, the kids enjoy a meet & greet photo session with Santa himself.  The exhibit is running from now until December 24th, and advanced tickets can be purchased online here.


Feel like giving back?  The Northern Illinois Food Bank is in need of donations.  Help them achieve their goal of providing hungry families with a hearty holiday meal and distributing a total of 34,000 holiday meal boxes.  Visit for more information on how you can help those in need.


Burn off a few of those Thanksgiving calories with the annual Turkey Trot, in its 31st year!  The 5k race will take place on November 27th.  Not up for the run? Volunteer or cheer on the brave trotters.  Registration is available online here.
