In June - Special Kids Day - Carnival 

In 2008, Special Kids Day added a new event to its calendar: Carnival Day.

Through a partnership with Elmhurst Jaycees, the Elmhurst Chamber of Commerce & Industry and the City of Elmhurst, Special Kids Day is able to provide two hours of carnival rides at Elmfest exclusive to special needs children and their families free of charge.

By eliminating the crowds and long waits for rides, these children can enjoy the fun of carnival rides along with refreshments, face painting and games without the stresses an outdoor festival can create. www.specialkidsday.org/event_carnival.htm 

In September - Annual 2008 Barn Sale 

Love garage sales? Do you want to attend the largest rummage sale we've EVER seen? 
Where: The Kane County Fair Grounds
When: In September
More Info: www.stpetersbarnsale.com

This year it's in a new location so things may have changed a bit, but historically they have multiple tents packed with furniture, clothing, accessories, electronics, computers, crafts, books, music, toys, bikes, antiques, etc. 

We go early on Saturday for the good stuff and then go Sunday afternoon for the bargains by the bag (fill a bag for $x.xx) Tip: To control spending we bring a list, only the amount of cash we can afford to spend, beverages and snacks.

In December - Special Kids Day - Holiday Event 

Started in 1990, Special Kids Day began as a holiday event for children with special needs and their families to visit Santa Claus without obstacles. www.specialkidsday.org/index.htm
