GEL COOL: Chicago Magazine Lists Glen Ellyn Cardboard Boat Regatta #5 in Top 10 in The Burbs List

Chicago Magazine 07-2012

Chicago Magazine's July 2012 issue ranks the Glen Ellyn Cardboard Boat Regatta #5 in this summer's Top 10 in the Burbs list.

Topping the list is Oak Park's Micro Brew Review on August 18th from 3 tp 7pm. More Info

Our neighbors to the west come in #2 and #3 on the list.

Romantics and parents looking for some family entertainment in the backseat can find it nightly at The Cascade Drive-In in West Chicago for $9 per adult and $5 for children 5-11. Pack 'em in on Tuesdays for the $14 per carload special. How many people does that famous neighborhood minivan hold? More Info

Wheaton's Vintage Rides roar on Front and Main Streets - when they aren't parked for display on Friday nights from 6:30 to 9pm. More Info

Naperville's Ribfest barely made the list at #9. More Info

The Glen Ellyn Cardboard Boat Regatta is held at Lake Ellyn Park on the Saturday before the July 4th holiday. Spirited races begin at noon. But arrive at least an hour early to tour the pageantry of boats and crew. The entire event is definitely worth the free cost of admission!
