The Batavia Windmill Festival was last weekend, and I told you I’d let you know all about it. In front of our Batavia Police Department, and our City Hall there’s a nice little music dome where the bands play, and they hold other things there too. Behind it is a play ground. Also, North of the police station there’s a nice place for the older pals with assisted living. West of the Station is Fox River and we also have a historic train depot. The band that was playing that night was called, “Arra”, and they were really quite good. Here’s a video I took that night.

BATAVIA, IL – Windmill City Festival has long been a staple of the community and has become a tradition for many local families. The festival features countless activities over the course of two and a half days. Whether you visit the carnival, compete in a 5k, participate in the pet parade or dive in to an ice cream eating contest, every member of the family is sure to find a new favorite activity! This year’s festival will be held Friday, July 8 through Sunday, July 10 at the Riverwalk in downtown Batavia. Admission was free. We had the greatest time, and naturally there was a beer tent, and they had wine coolers too! This was one of the downtown area, and Batavia’s biggest event of the summer! The Windmill City Festival committee includes representatives from the Batavia Park District, Batavia Chamber of Commerce and the City of Batavia.
