During July, cookie-making and face painting, zoo animals, an introduction to musical instruments and puppet shows are on the agenda with all-day carnivals scheduled for July 30 and 31.
Here’s a link to the full schedule of activities for Midway Airport’s Air Carnival.

All the activities are free.
