One of the great things about living in The Glen (a housing development in Glenview, Illinois) is the frequent entertainment only minutes away from any Glen home. I’ve previously written about the weekly summertime concerts on Tower Drive (The Glen’s “main street”), the parades, the annual Art Fair, vintage car shows, and many other wonderful events. This past weekend we enjoyed Flight Fest in Gallery Park which is in the heart of The Glen.
Flight Fest was organized by the Glenview Park District, and what a day it was! The Festival kicked off at 1pm with a ceremony honoring the men and women of the U.S. armed forces, past and present. Live music was provided all day long and into the evening, too. There was “big band” (swing), a teen band, and classical, country and pop music.
The activity schedule for the day was targeted to families with children. There were roving entertainers, games, a Story Walk, Eurobungy, inflatables, a rock climbing wall, face painting, and a giant hot air balloon. It was like having a carnival right in our own back yard.
I really enjoyed visiting the exhibit of the former Naval Air Station Glenview which resided on the property which is now The Glen. There were old photos, a film and many artifacts.
The Glen has many neighborhoods, each with distinctive homes styles and types. We have single family homes, townhomes, row homes, two-flats, duplexes, and condo apartments. The price range is roughly from $400,000 to over $2 million. But as I tell many of my buyer clients, you’re buying not just a home, but a lifestyle. Flight Fest was but one example of the kind of lifestyle we live here in The Glen.
