The idea of Ravinia Festival isn’t strictly just for parents, because the kids can enjoy it too! That being said, the oldest music festival in the nation just released their 2015 lineup on their website.
The children’s concert series this year at the Highland Park fesitival is one with a variety of diverse performances.
Although it is getting warm outside, it will be a while until we receive 80 degree weather. Although we can dream away for ourselves, and plan early before tickets become hard to come by.
