Bucket List of Illinois Events-- Part 2: Superman, Milk and a Taste
5. HARVARD MILK DAYS, Harvard Early June
Billed as the state's longest-running hometown festival started in 1942. I remember dropping one of our actives off in Harvard after taking him for a ride when I was pledging Delta Sigma Phi in 1970 and thinking about taking the cow statue downtown for a ride. We didn't.
6. SUPERMAN CELEBRATION, Metropolis Early June
Way downstate, but with a name like this town has, you'd kind of have to do this. See the 15-foot-tall statue of "favorite son."
7. MORE ON 34 US Highway 34 Aurora to Galesburg Mid-June
All sorts of stuff for sale in flea markets, yard sales and etc..
Lincoln Highway also has a Lincoln Buy-Way along its route during the summer.
8. McHENRY FIESTA DAYS / ANTIOCH TASTE OF SUMMER McHenry and Antioch
These two towns are about twenty miles apart and have these two festivals at the same time. We live right between them and I keep trying to get them to have it at different times, but no luck yet.
