Why, we’ve even got your morning snack covered.  Our generous sponsor,  Whole Foods Market Deerfield,  will provide snacks from their 365 Everyday Value® line of products to fuel your kids for a headbangin’ good time (Note: Little Lake County does not encourage and is not responsible for actual banging of heads)

The parking lot for Kracklauer Park is accessible off of Seymour Avenue next to the Dance Studio located at 100 N. Seymour. There is no parking entrance off of Route 45 but you may enter the park on foot from that side.

V.I.K.’s (Very Important Kids) who received All-Access Tour Passes at Tour Stop #1 in Bowen Park should remember to bring them and have them validated by one of the Little Lake County “roadies.” Validate these “backstage passes” at 4 out of the 5 Tour Stops, and be entered into a drawing to win a $50 gift certificate to Kohl Children’s Museum in Glenview.  Our limited supply of All-Access Passes were available ONLY at Bowen Park on Wednesday,  July 23rd.  No other passes will be available at the remaining tour dates.
