Chicago Parent Magazine is hosting a fun day out at The Accelerated Center on Sunday, April 26th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  This family-oriented event gets even better because a portion of the proceeds benefits Bernie’s Book Bank. As part of the Chicago Parent Playdate, families are encouraged to participate in a giant book collection effort. What a great way to kick-off some spring cleaning at home!

Jill Rosenberg, director of communications and marketing at Bernie’s Book Bank says, “We strive to be an organization where individuals, families and organizations can make a meaningful difference in the lives of children. We hope each family will take advantage of the opportunity to plug into our goal of providing books for a better life at this fun-filled event.”

There will be non-stop entertainment and activities for the kids as well as Mom and Dad. Bounce houses, train rides, character visits, obstacle courses and storybook princesses will be on-site to amuse the kids.  Performances include Miss Jamie’s Farm, Rita Rose, Storytown Improv, Istvan & His Imaginary Band, Mary Macaroni, The Storybook Mom, Tunes & Balloons by Great Scott and Fairytale Theater by Golden Feather Productions.  Parents can gather ideas for family fun and enrichment from a wide range of event sponsors.

Bring the family and join the fun.  After all, when the spring cleaning and organizing is done, everyone deserves a good day of fun!
