The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater will provide tours of the Mainstream Pumping Station and then bus visitors to the McCook Reservoir, the last and largest of three reservoirs being constructed as apart of the Tunnel and Reservoir Plan (TARP).  The tour will give visitors a complete overview of the TARP system and how it functions to improve local water quality and mitigate flooding throughout Cook County.

Six Flags Fright Fest

Saturday, Oct 21

Join us for a trip to Six Flags Great America and enjoy the annual Freight Fest!

Once the sun goes down the night begins to take over and transforms the park. The midways become full of the living dead, ready to scare the pants off of anyone who dares to cross their path. Our lineup of exclusive and nail-baiting haunted houses will be sure to leave you screaming. If that's not enough 'scare' for you, check out our thrilling roller coasters, in the dark! Watch as the park transforms from "Thrills by Day" to "Fright by Night."
