The Story of Family Fest...
Jennifer Ries, a Mary Woodward 2nd grader, wrote a letter to Mayor Craig Dirksen (Ret.) in 2005 suggesting that he make a holiday called "Family Day." The letter, and Mr. Dirksen's response - "a great idea" were featured in the May 2005 Cityscape and Family Fest was born! 

The event was designed to recognize the importance of family and also serve as a showcase for citizen and neighborhood organizations, diverse cultures, and traditions in our community.
