Pelican Palooza highlights local Fox Lake businesses, local photography, and the American White Pelican Migration. This two-week long event is from March 26, 2021 to April 9, 2021 and is celebrated at participating Fox Lake businesses that are offering specials throughout the two week time frame.

Participating businesses (known as Pelican Partners) will be featured on a Pelican Scavenger Hunt. There are different colored Pelican Palooza logos at the front of each Pelican Partner's storefront. Use the clues on the scavenger hunt to find 10 out of the 18 Pelican Partners. Submit your completed scavenger hunts by Monday, April 12, 2021 at 8:00 a.m. for a chance to win a $25 gift card to one of our Pelican Partners (12 chances to win). All completed forms will receive a smaller prize if they do not win a gift card prize. Submit your filled out sheet or typed out answers and contact information via email to marketing@foxlake.org

Additionally, local pelican photography is on display at the Fox Lake District Library. The Library will also have pelican craft kits for kids, teens, and adults. Call or check the library's website to see current hours.
