31st annual festival draws thousands
By RYAN TERRELL -
WOODRIDGE – Woodridge’s 31st annual Jubilee festival brought in more than 7,000 people in five days, according to event organizers.
“It was one of the best-attended events we’ve had in quite a few years, and that was because of the weather,” said Megan Pettit, public relations and marketing manager with the Woodridge Park District.
The festival’s opening night carnival on June 11 was canceled due to inclement weather, but the remaining days provided for great weather, she said.
“People were out every night and during the day Saturday and Sunday it was very crowded,” Pettit added.
The event, hosted jointly by the village of Woodridge and Woodridge Park District at Woodridge and Center drives, included the carnival, children’s activities, music, food and a fireworks show.
