When spring hits, jump into the open air enjoy to all the season has to offer on Kankakee. Locals love to head out to the local golf course to brush up on the skills they may have lost during the winter months, while others are found getting their fishing poles ready and heading over Kankakee River or one of the many quarries that can be found throughout the town. For an all day adventure, check out the Kankakee River State Park, which provides areas for activities like hiking, running, fishing, canoeing, and camping.
Merchant Street Music
Each July Kankakee hosts the Merchant Street MusicFest for two days in Depot Park. The festival showcases bands from the local area, as well as other popular musicians to keep the crowds entertained while wandering around all the festival has to offer. You can also visit several artists who are there to showcase their art, talk about what has inspired them, and offer pieces up for sale. If you are attending with children, the kid zone offers kiddie music, face painting, bounce houses, and much more. You can ever grab a bite to eat from one of the local food vendors that set up shop.
