'Welcoming Us Home'

We like the theme the Oswegoland Park District has picked for this weekend's PrairieFest community celebration: "Welcoming Us Home."

The fest opens today (Thursday) in PrairieFest Park just south of Oswego High School and will continue through Sunday.

Since the park district assumed organizational responsibility for Oswego's annual community celebration in the late 1980s, many area families have come to plan family gatherings and reunions around the fest activities. We also know many former long-time area residents make a point of returning to the village each year at this time to meet-up with old friends, enjoy many of the fest events and amaze themselves by just how much the community has grown and changed over the past couple of decades.

But despite the many changes, PrairieFest serves to highlight the small town charm that Oswego still has in abundance.

We hope you'll take some time this weekend and come out and enjoy all the fun PrairieFest has to offer, including the carnival and kids event in PrairieFest Park, the nightly concerts on the PrairieFest Main Stage and downtown on the village's Main Street, and the parade through the village's downtown on Sunday afternoon. But remember, these are just some of the many events on the fest calendars. There is much, much more for all ages to enjoy, so we recommend you check out the handy PrairieFest booklet our readers received as an insert in last week's Ledger-Sentinel or visit

PrairieFest and Oswego's still small town charm are indeed welcoming you home.
