UNION – The McHenry County Historical Society & Museum will host its 35th Annual Heritage Fair from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, July 10, at the museum, 6422 Main St.

This year’s theme, “Return to the Good Ol' Days" underscores everyone's desire to "get back to normal" and revisit our roots.

Highlights include a colossal Garden Glitz plant sale, our popular White Elephant sale, a return of a fortified vintage fashion sale, book sale, silent auction, children's activities, bake sale and a pie-baking contest. Pies will be sold by the slice immediately following the judging at the Heritage Fair’s bake sale. The grand champion will receive a trophy and his/her name engraved on a permanent trophy at the museum. For rules, visit GotHistory.org.

The Heritage Fair Car Show returns along downtown Main Street in front of the museum along with DJ Jose Ramos spinning “oldies.” As in the past, the free show will feature sports, classic and antique cars. Top cars will receive trophies, including one for Best of Show. A one-of-a-kind, handmade People's Choice trophy and door prizes also will be presented.

The day also features free admission to the museum and plenty of family friendly food from Tacos Express, Boy Scout Troop 153 and the Kettle Corn Cookery. For additional information, visit www.gothistory.org or call 815-923-2267.
