Community picnic returns with traditional family activities

The 4th of July community picnic will return this year to Izaak Walton Nature Preserve after a pandemic hiatus, but the event will reach back further than two years for its inspiration.

The Family Fun Fest sponsored by the Homewood-Flossmoor Park District, which followed the Homewood 4th of July parade for a decade or more, will not return.

Instead, Izaak Walton volunteers are bringing back the pre-Fun Fest version that was a regular feature of the holiday celebration for many years.
