Create Your Own Unique Tent

Families are welcome to showcase their creativity by decorating their tent and surrounding space for our Unique Tent Contest.  Tents will be judged by the Buffalo Grove Park District staff and volunteers on creativity, style and theme.  The most unique tent will receive a family prize (and bragging rights).  Examples of what can be used, but are not limited to are small fences, lawn chairs, holiday lights, pinwheels, flower pots and mailboxes. Decorations must be removed at the end of the event, and may not surpass more than 5 feet from your tent.

For more information, contact Allison Oberst at 847.850.2146.
