Illinois Adventure

  • Apr. 14 – Illinois Adventure travels to just north of Rockford to Historic Auto Attractions, a museum that features more than 75 famous and historic vehicles—and where a single car led to a collection of Kennedy memorabilia. The program also leaps into a battle fought with paint at Chilli Paintball Pits in Chillicothe and sees how art, the outdoors, and live performances have become popular attractions at Millennium Park in downtown Chicago.
