Create Your Own Unique Tent

Families will get the chance to showcase their creativity by decorating their own tent and surrounding space to fit their family’s personalities. Families will be judged by the Buffalo Grove Park District staff and volunteers. The most creative tent will receive a great prize (and bragging rights).

Examples of what can be used: small fences, lawn chairs, holiday lights, pinwheels, flower pots, mail boxes and much more. Everything must be removable, may not abuse the lawn and must not surpass more than 5 ft from your tent.
