Elgin Hay Day, a family-friendly event on Elgin's far west side, returns on Saturday August 25, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Meier Park, located at 3770 Gansett Parkway. The event will get you ready for fall with hayrides, a petting zoo, crafts, potato sack races, a hay maze and other fun activities. Enjoy food from local vendors and live music. There is limited parking around the park. Those that live nearby are encouraged to walk or bike. A shuttle will run back and forth from the Prairie Knolls Middle School parking lot too.
