Palos Park will again host its own version of the legendary street race Motogiro d’Italia to showcase the beauty of automobiles as a kickoff to Love the Park, the third annual fine arts fair May 19 and 20 at the Village Green on 123rd Street. “Art and the Automobile,” the theme of the first day of the fair, will begin with Motogiro d’Palos Park, a morning parade of 30-plus vehicles from the Metra station to the Village Green that has spawned encampments of mimosa-sipping onlookers.

The fair featuring works by Midwest artists, many local, continues May 20 with a theme of “Art and the Family” including chalk art, mural and face painting and artmaking activities. Art themselves, the automobiles have become a highlight of the weekend.
