I think it is the 2nd weekend in October they have a big country fair in Grant's park. Lots to see and eats, music and a lot of items to see and buy. It is worth the trip to see.

I love to spend time in Grant's park. It is a quiet place most afternoons to read a book, enjoy the fountain, or just enjoy the view.
