Do Division is a neighborhood festival attracts over 75,000 people. For the past four years, festival organizers have partnered with the LaSalle II PTO and Friends of Pritzker School organization to create the Do Division Family Fun Fest, and this has quickly become one of the premier family-friendly festivals in the city. The 2013 event was held on Saturday and Sunday June 1-2 from noon to 6pm.
For 2013 we brought back many popular activities and added several more including a craft tent from The Easel Art Studio Craft Tent, punk rock hair styling by Psycho Baby, The Kids Table, mini manicures by Nail Boutique, toddler zone by the Children’s Learning Place, TWO bounce houses, mini-golf, face painting, balloon animals, pony rides, and an awesome train.
We partnered with The Museum of Science and Industry to bring its new exhibit Animals: Inside/Out, and they brought several related activities to educate and entertain a wide range of ages. The Shedd Aquarium also returned to fest with information about their Stingray Touch and Jellies exhibits.
Our Pizano’s Family Fun Fest Main Stage also had two full days of entertainment.
