Celebrate Evanston’s 150th Birthday – Sat. July 27

Happy Birthday Evanston! Two celebrations will take place on Saturday afternoon, July 27.

The Evanston Art Center will place 150 candles out on the front lawn. Thanks to Home Depot for donating all of our 150 lawn candles and to the businesses, organizations and individuals that have generouly purchased a candle. Join them for cupcakes and other artful activities from 1pm to 4pm on Saturday the 27th.

The Evanston History Center will also have their ice cream social from 1pm to 4pm on July 27. Free popcorn, lemonade and Andy’s Frozen Custard will be served along with games for kids, face painting, music and plenty of time to simply lounge on the lawn at the Dawes House.

Both events are a wonderful way to be part of Evanston’s 150 celebration.
