Ongoing Events & Activities

Items are listed in alphabetical order.

Fairmount Park (Horse Track)

Located just on the other side of the river in Collinsville, IL, this race track hosts FUN activities all summer long. A small contingent of the 'Crew' visited last year and we had a ball. We placed a few bets, ate some wings, enjoyed the 80's band. I highly recommend we go at least once a month throughout the summer.
