Flossmoor Fest

Flossmoor police investigating fight at village festival

A police investigation is continuing into a fight at last weekend’s Flossmoor Fest.

Witnesses to the Sept. 8 incident saw fighting take place on Sterling Avenue, just north of Flossmoor Road, among members of a group of young people. At the end of the brief fight one of the youths went through a window at Coldwell Banker, 1056 Sterling Ave.

Flossmoor residents, guests enjoy a day of community spirit at Flossmoor Fest

The annual Flossmoor Fest gave the community a chance to come together for some family fun, and a chance for inanimate dogs to help out living dogs with serious health problems. 

Although the forecast said otherwise, Mayor Paul Braun predicted the weather would hold for the crowds at Flossmoor Fest on Saturday, Sept. 8.

Score one for the mayor.

The day was cool, breezy, overcast and fall-like, but the rains in the forecast did not materialize.

New events and activities for all on tap at Sept. 8 Flossmoor Fest

New activities — from a photo booth to the Jesse White Tumblers to an auction of the downtown dogs — have been added to this year’s Flossmoor Fest. The annual street festival returns Sept. 8 with a full day of activities for all ages. Flossmoor Fest will take over the village’s downtown area and Flossmoor Park between 11:30 a.m. and 10 p.m.

New games, movie added to Flossmoor Fest on Sept. 9

Flossmoor Fest returns Sept. 9 with a full day of activities for all ages. New to this year’s village festival are a video game truck and a beer/cocktail tent close to the main stage. A movie, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” will be shown at dusk. 

Fest marks return of clocks to Flossmoor’s downtown tower

Cue the DeLorean.
 
Flossmoor will have its own “Back to the Future” moment next weekend when new timepieces are unveiled at the downtown clock tower.
 
Mayor Paul Braun said the new clocks will make their debut during opening ceremonies for Flossmoor Fest on Sept. 9.
 
“They are supposed to be installed in the next few days,” Braun said Thursday.

Chronicle invites community to get on the front page

Anyone who’s ever wanted their picture in the paper can get on the front page of the Homewood-Flossmoor Chronicle Saturday at Flossmoor Fest. A special “selfie frame” that looks like a page from Homewood-Flossmoor’s local newspaper will be available at the Community Relations Commission tent.

Sept. 10 Flossmoor Fest offers full day of family fun

Flossmoor Fest returns Sept. 10 with a full day of activities for all ages. This year’s festival — located on Sterling Avenue in downtown Flossmoor and at Flossmoor Park — again features food, music, games for the kids and a great chance for friends and neighbors to get together.

Chronicle gets in on the fun by sponsoring four events

After two years of reporting on the community, the Homewood-Flossmoor Chronicle is becoming an active participant in local events.

On Sept. 10, the paper will sponsor Flossmoor Fest and also a new golf-and-craft-beer event, Fore and Pour, hosted by the Homewood-Flossmoor Park District.

Flossmoor Fest canceled due to poor weather conditions

Falling temperatures, a soaking rain early Saturday and a damp forecast conspired to scuttle this year's Flossmoor Fest. Village officials said the safety of the community was the main concern when organizers made the decision.
