PEPSI FAMILY DAY AT ARLINGTON PARK EXPANDS FOR 2003 SEASON
Popular Sunday Promotion Adds Theme Days
ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (April 28, 2003) -- One of the best ways for a family to spend a Sunday afternoon together is at Arlington Park. Every Sunday from May 25 through Sept. 21 is a Pepsi Family Day presented by the Daily Herald, which returns with a new twist this year, special theme days each week that the entire family can enjoy.
"A great day for the family at Arlington Park has become even better in 2003," said Arlington Park Vice President, Marketing and Sales Carl Schloessman. "Every Pepsi Family Day will have a new, fun theme each week in addition to the popular children's activities like pony rides, petting zoo and crafts."
Luaus, Mardi Gras, On The Farm, Celebrate America, Carnival, Winter Wonderland, Sports and Circus theme days are just a few of the great ways that Mom and Dad can spend time with the kids. In addition, all the favorite Family Day staples from years past -- pony rides, petting zoo and face painters -- are back.
Also on Sundays, the children can sign up and participate in Arlington Park's Junior Jockey Club, which is open to kids 12 and under. The Junior Jockey Club, which is free to join, educates children about Arlington Park and horse racing through hands-on activities and giveaways. Members receive a free monthly newsletter highlighting club activities, horse terminology and upcoming events.
Junior Jockey Club events are held from noon until 4 p.m. in the Park area (unless noted otherwise) on Pepsi Family Day Sundays from May 25 through Sept. 7. Some events require pre-registration on the Junior Jockey Club hotline: 847/870-6614 (beginning June 15).
The entire theme schedule for Pepsi Family Day follows:
May 25: Circus
