Movies in the Park on July 15: Penguins of Madagascar in Prospect Park
Join the Park Ridge Park District for Movies in the Park this Thursday, July 15 to watch Penguins of Madagascar. The movie begins at dusk (approximately 8:30 p.m.) outdoors at Prospect Park.
Plucky penguins Skipper, Kowalski, Rico, and Private — the most elite spies ever hatched — join forces with a chic undercover organization known as the North Wind. Led by highly trained, handsome and arrogant Agent Classified, this special inter-species task force must stop a many-tentacled villain, Dr. Octavius Brine, from destroying the world.
In case of inclement weather, movie will be held in the Paula Hassell O’Connor Community Building at Prospect Park.

Beer Under Glass craft beer event returns to Chicago’s Garfield Park Aug. 27
The Illinois Craft Brewers Guild, the nonprofit trade association representing nearly 300 craft breweries in Illinois, has announced its annual Beer Under Glass (BUG) festival and fundraiser will return to Garfield Park Conservatory on Friday, Aug. 27.
Now in its 11th year, this one-of-a-kind festival pairs local craft beer with one of the city’s most exceptional venues for a celebration of the unique connection between nature and craft beer. All proceeds benefit Garfield Park Conservatory Alliance and the Illinois Craft Brewers Guild.
This year, samples from approximately 70 Illinois breweries will be available during two limited tasting sessions, each with 1,000 attendees to promote social distancing and a more intimate festival experience. Food and beverages from local restaurants and food trucks will be available for purchase. All breweries will be positioned in the outdoor gardens, but the Conservatory’s indoor collections will be open for self-guided tours.
General admission tickets are $75 and will be available beginning on Friday, July 23. There is no VIP ticket or early entry this year, and the festival will continue rain or shine.
Session 1 is from 3-6 p.m. and Session 2 is from 7-10 p.m. on Aug. 27. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit Illinoisbeer.org/bug
