Join professional storyteller Brian “Fox” Ellis in front of the community hearth at Centennial Park on Saturday, July 19 at 7 p.m. for a spell-binding performance. (Centennial Park is located on the corner of Whitney and Center Streets). True stories and period literature are woven with traditional songs and poetry from the most un-civil war. Travel back in time to the bloody battlefields, and gruesome field hospitals of America’s deadliest war. Bring your lawn chairs and picnic baskets for a Ravinia-style affair. Rain location: Grayslake Heritage Center & Museum, 164 Hawley Street.
