Pharmacies such as Walgreens, Jewel-Osco, and more also offer community members a chance to register for a COVID-19 vaccine appointment.
Eyes to the Skies Canceled
Lisle’s Eyes to the Skies event has been canceled this year. This is the second year in a row the hot air balloon event has been sidelined due to COVID-19. According to the organization’s website they plan on bringing the event back in 2022 with updates being announced on their social media pages.
County Fair Canceled
The DuPage County Fair Association has also decided to cancel its plans for the DuPage County Fair that was scheduled for July 21 to July 25. This is the second year in a row that the event has been canceled due to COVID-19 mitigations. DuPage County Fair Association Executive Manager Jim McGuire said in a letter on the fair website the decision to cancel is based on Governor J.B. Pritzker’s Restore Illinois Plan and the fact that he announced the Bridge Phase would be delayed. County fair organizers are exploring the possibilities of setting up a similar type of event in the fall.
