If we get a few members posting here that they are going, I'll move this to the festival section of the forum.

Looks like quite a few Illinois towns are doing this type of thing on the 18th. Lining it up with Earth Day it appears. Too bad there's so much overlap.

i may go to this one, but it depends. Does anyone know how big the fields are?... or if they are surrounded by big trees? The trail map (at their web site) seems rather limited.

Hard to say exactly where the flying will be, but the web site says by the water's edge.

Here's a picture of that area..
