Shop 'Til You Drop and a Pirate Camp-Out

Check out what you need to know in Winnetka this Wednesday.

Know: Arrrrgh, Mateys — Pirate Camp Out is coming up at Winnetka! Pirates of the Caribbean 2 will be screened at dusk, and children will be able to roast marshmallows and make s'mores. In the morning, a continental breakfast will be provided for all participants. Please note that this is a family-only event. Families with tents will be the only ones allowed to spend the night at Tower Road Beach. More information is available here

We've already encouraged you all to check out Wednesdays in the Woods — the weekly concert and farmers markets held every Wednesday in Hubbard Woods. But did you know that many of the stores in the district also have extended hours? That, combined with the seemingly endless sales around town, make this event definitely worth stopping by.

Lollapalooza, the enormous annual music festival held in downtown Chicago, will be held this weekend, from Friday to Sunday. This means that the Metra and the CTA will be filled with many, many festival-goers. Plan accordingly. 

It's National Mutt's Day! Celebrate your multi-breed pooch accordingly — by buying him or her a fancy dog treat or toy at the Wilmette Pet Center!
