McLean Day

On the hunt for something fun to do with the family over the upcoming weekend? Bring the whole gang, including the littlest ones, to McLean Day 2017 on Saturday, May 20, from 11AM - 5PM. This annual fun-filled festival organized by the McLean Community Center is a staple in the area, drawing in over 13,000 visitors each year to help kick off the summer season.

McLean Day has events and activities for participants of all ages, ranging from a petting zoo to bubble ball. Enjoy strolling through the grassy fields to scope out the vendors, which will include everything from local organizations to artists and crafters, from whom you can learn about a new topic, or buy a handmade item to commemorate the day. Other fun activities will be the carnival rides, laser tag and tennis clinics. The youngest kids will love having a balloon animal made for them, and the older kids are sure to enjoy the rock climbing wall. Everyone will have fun trying food from one of the numerous food trucks that will be there.

In addition, there will be live performances throughout the day, with the US Navy Band kicking things off at 11AM. The musical and dance performances vary from a patriotic sing-a-long to rockabilly honky-tonk to riveting stepping. Check out the calendar for performance times.

There will even be an opportunity for adults to perform their civic duty, by voting for candidates for the McLean Community Center Governing Board positions.
