Elmwood Park’s Fall Fest Comments Off

ELMWOOD PARK – Residents and visitors will have a final opportunity of the year to enjoy a weekend of outdoor food and entertainment at the second annual Elmwood Park Fall Festival.

The two day event takes place from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday, September 19, and from 12 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday, September 20.

“We’re building on the success of the Taste of Elmwood Park in August,” Trustee Jonathan Zivojnovic said. “And, by moving the festival to September this year, we’re expecting another huge crowd.”

Taste of Elmwood Park drew an estimated 15,000 to 20,000 people over a four-day weekend. “The community enjoys coming out for these kinds of outdoor events,” Village President Angelo “Skip” Saviano said. “We know they are excited!”

The Fall Festival will be held on Diversey Avenue between 73rd and 74th Avenues. It will feature live entertainment, a variety of food from local vendors as well as beer and wine, and pumpkin decorating, a petting zoo and pony rides for the kids.

“It’s another great way to celebrate our Centennial anniversary and to put the spotlight on our business community along Diversey Avenue,” Saviano said.

Electrical Aggregation Update

The Village of Elmwood Park’s municipal aggregation agreement with FirstEnergy Solutions is nearing its end.  At this time, no suppliers have submitted prices to the Village that are lower than the current ComEd rate of 7.59¢/kWh.  At this point, residents and small businesses that have participated in the Village’s municipal aggregation program have two options:

  1. Negotiate a price and contract with a new supplier.  The Illinois Commerce Commission’s website for some good information on prices that various suppliers are currently offering to ComEd customers at:  http://www.pluginillinois.org/OffersBegin.aspx
  2. Do nothing, and have your account returned to ComEd.  All accounts that do not arrange for a new supplier will automatically be returned to the ComEd default rate.  There is no cost to return to ComEd, and your service will not be interrupted.

For questions regarding this program please contact the Village Hall at (708) 452-7300.
