The ushering in of autumn has definitely come with a drop in temperatures.  But you wouldn’t know it from the remaining warmth in the hearts of all those who attended this year’s Barrington Hills Fall Into Fun Festival!  Travel blanket raffle winners have come to Village Hall to claim their prizes and shared their exuberant stories of the great time they had at this year’s Barrington Hills Fall Into Fun Festival!

Stories of favorite activities, the great food, and the joy shared among families and friends abound.

George Tarulis was excited to learn he was a raffle winner. “This was the perfect day to wear this shirt,” he said when claiming his prize, referring to his “Be good to people” T-shirt.  He’s been attending the Hills’ Fall Fest since its inception in 2013. “We had a great time! I have twins that attend the (Barrington) High School. I used to bring them when they were kids but they looked forward to coming and they had a great time,” he shared with enthusiasm.

 

The Fest had something to offer everyone: from the very young to the young at heart. “It felt like I was in the Hills for sure,” said resident Aimee Angelos.  Residents shared their stories of awe in seeing the Stateline Spitfires Drill team performance, experiencing the Living Horse Museum, and participating in the many interactive animal attractions.

From the point of check-in, fest-goers were greeted with activities and exhibitor’s tables. Magic by Mark was a showstopper and thankfully, he didn’t make any visitors disappear! 

Barrington Hills’ First Responders always draw a crowd. No one could pass up the games and toys, or the chance to tour the emergency vehicles and sit in the driver’s seat which made for great photo ops! Thank you Barrington Hills Police Department, Barrington Countryside Fire Protection District and QuadCom 9-1-1 for participating in this memorable event!

Pups for adoption at Border Tails Rescue

 

Moretti’s and Primo’s Pizza accompanied by a Wild Onion Premium Brew served by the Barrington Lions Club were all a definite crowd pleaser!

 

The fest was a certain success, but no truer words could be said of Rocky Road and Dallin, two dogs that were up for adoption at the Border Tails Rescue tent. These loving animals found their forever home with residents Wayne and Lou. Glad we were able to help!
