We've just completed our twelfth annual appearance at the Streamwood Summer Celebration's Business Expo sponsored by the Streamwood Chamber of Commerce. It would have been #13, but we missed one year to go on a river cruise.

Friday night had large crowds, partly because of the weather, but also the feature band, American English. Saturday was another gorgeous day with lots of the traffic in the expo tent. The evening was busiest due to the featured band, 7th Heaven, drawing the crowds. Sunday was warmer, but even that didn't keep the crowds away. Unfortunately, ARRA had to cut their act short when it started to rain.
In addition to show-casing local businesses in the expo tent, there were plenty of activities for families. Local bands performed throughout the weekend, there was a parade on Saturday with about 100 entries this year, rides for the children and young at heart, bingo, face-painting, ice cream eating content for the children and lots more. Many volunteers from the village make this a special event each and every year.
We spoke to many couples, families, and individuals that were interested in getting away for a vacation. As usual, we had a large supply of brochures, which we call "wish books" on hand. Alaska cruisetours and European River Cruises were the most popular areas of interest in the cruise category.
Europe and Disneyworld were the most popular land tour destinations. Galapagos and Asia were other destinations with lots of interest among fair goers.
