Festival of Sister Cities 2017
The 6th annual Festival of Sister Cities took place earlier this month. Residents and visitors were able to enjoy a variety of live music, family rides at the carnival, and participation from local business and non-profit organizations. This year marked the first ever Chili Cook-off Competition between local public safety providers, which turned out to be great success. The Chicago Heights Police Department was voted winner, receiving the first-ever 1st Place Trophy! All proceeds went to charity, and over $1,500.00 was raised, with each department that participated sending a contribution to their charity of choice.
- Chicago Heights Police Department--Shriners Hospitals for Children
- Chicago Heights Fire Department--Muscular Dystrophy Association
- Lynwood Police Department--National Multiple Sclerosis Society
- Park Forest Police Department--LaRabida Children's Hospital
This was a wonderful community event, and we are already looking forward to beginning the planning for next year! Please visit the Festival of the Sister Cities page
