Eyes To the Skies Ends
Lisle’s Eyes to the Skies festival is officially ending. The annual event was volunteer-run, provided financial assistance to six local charities, and featured hot-air balloons, fireworks, carnival rides and refreshments. After canceling the past two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, festival organizers found a lack of interest and support from community members and a decreasing number of volunteers available for the three to four day event. The Village of Lisle and Lisle Park District plan to work together to bring the community a new, smaller event to celebrate the Fourth of July.
