Do Division Family Fun Fest is the exclusive family and kid-friendly area of Do Division Street Fest. This is the 6th year Friends of Pritzker and LaSalle II PTO are organizing the fest-within-a-fest. Sponsored by the Smoky Mountain Tourism Alliance, the Family Fun Fest occupies two jam-packed blocks on Hoyne Avenue between Division and Crystal and on Crystal between Hoyne and Damen.

Some of the many popular activities featured at the Family Fun Fest include: Building Blocks Toy stores’ train rides, The Easel Art Studio Craft Tent, face painting, balloon animals, punk rock hair do’s, the Children’s Learning Place Toddler Zone, inflatable obstacle courses, goodie bags, photo ops, face painting, mini golf and pony rides. Plus, everyone is encouraged to boogie on down at the Pizano’s Family Fun Fest entertainment stage with Laura Doherty, Mary Macaroni, Jeanie B and many more throughout the weekend.

In addition, in association with this year’s sponsor, the Family Fun Fest will feature themed mascots interacting with children showcasing many of the Smoky Mountain area animals and attractions. Kids can participate in a fun 5 quiz about the National Park and neighboring areas. One lucky child will win a trip to the Smoky Mountains, complete with lodging and tickets to area attractions. All kids that answer each question correctly will be entered to win.

100% of Proceeds from Do-Division Family Fun Fest activities go to Friends of Pritzker School and LaSalle II PTO, two local public elementary schools. 18% of the main fest net gate proceeds are also donated to the two schools.
