Family Outdoor Festival

It was family fun in the sun for the folks at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital (www.advocatehealth.com/gshp/default.cfm?id=1) in Barrington on August the 25th. Compass Rose Events (www.compassroseevents.com) hired us to play good music for the entire family from 11am till 4pm. We pulled many songs from our wonderful collection of “summer theme” feel good songs and then melted in some oldies (www.windycityhitman.com/780/oldies), disco (www.windycityhitman.com/756/disco), hard rock (www.windycityhitman.com/738/hard-rock), current top 40 (www.windycityhitman.com/1461/2012), country, (classic rock www.windycityhitman.com/748/classic-rock), 80’s rock (www.windycityhitman.com/742/80s-rock) along with specific family requests. With a petting zoo by A Zoo To You (www.AZTY.net) (see photos) we played a set from our zoo & safari songs and with the rehabilitation dogs we played from our dog song collection. It was also a good opportunity to mix in many of our classic commercials after our announcements of activities & events. The kids loved the hula hoop contest (www.windycityhitman.com/228/hula-hoops) (see photos) and adults joined in to some line dancing. Great food was available including; hot dogs, veggie burgers, brats, corn on the cob, watermelon, popcorn, pop and a variety of ice cream favorites. Other fun activities included a picture spinner, ballon painting and inflatable games for kids. Great to see all the volunteers along with Ro Ostergaard who headed up this most successful event. It was just a whole bunch of fun.
