Join the City of Oak Forest for a JOLLY JAMBOREE on Saturday, December 2 from 10 a.m. to noon at City Hall. Oh, what fun you will have as you walk from station to station to enjoy some holiday cheer with friends, family and neighbors.
INSIDE CITY HALL Tell Santa Claus what's on your wish list and let Blink of an Eye Photography capture that special holiday moment. There will be two photo packages to choose from (cash or credit) and photos will be printed on site. You can also have your portrait done by local caricature artist Mark Odewald.
INSIDE THE FIRE STATION Sing along with DJ Loren of Fun, Fun, Fun DJs to all of your favorite holiday songs as you decorate cookies (while supplies last), visit with Bluey, or have your face painted. We also will announce the trim-a-tree contest winners at 10:30 a.m.
OUTSIDE Step inside the Giant Inflatable Snow Globe to be transported into a winter wonderland. The globe creates a magical atmosphere, and with its transparent walls, makes for an unforgettable photo opportunity.
