About The Publisher: Melissa Alcorn

Bloomington-Normal, home to 160,000+, is located in the heart of Illinois at the junction of Interstates 55, 39, and 74, and nestled at about the halfway point between Chicago and St. Louis.  With our central location in the Midwest, you'll find big city resources with a small town feel.

Bloomington-Normal is proud to be the headquarters for State Farm Insurance and COUNTRY Financial. Our higher educational institutions include Illinois State University, Illinois Wesleyan University, Heartland Community College and Lincoln College-Normal.

I really hope you enjoy this website and that it becomes your go-to resource for family fun in our community.  As a stay-at-home mom of three, I know how hard and time-consuming it is to find things to do as a family, even harder to find out about things to do before it is already over.  So let me do the work for you.  Sign up for our weekly newsletter and get the scoop on upcoming events right to your inbox.  If there's something you want to see on our events list, email me at MelissaA@macaronikid.com
