August 26, 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM @ North End of Central Park
Join us at the north end of Grayslake's Central Park for a 19th-century rules baseball game pitting the Grayslake Athletics against the McHenry County Independents. Learn the wildly different rules and cheer and jeer in fine Victorian fashion using authentic 1800s baseball slang. This event serves as the kick off for the Color Aloft Balloon Festival, which continues through dusk. Huzzah!

Join us for a toy and model car show staged by collectors Philip Bruno and Harold Flood on Sunday, August 27 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. This event will coincide with the Oasis Car Show in downtown Grayslake.
