Naperville Jaycees Last Fling starts today

The Naperville Jaycees’ Last Fling kicks off today. The four-day fest held over Labor Day weekend will be marking its 40th year.

The event takes place along Jackson Avenue in downtown Naperville. The fun includes a carnival, live music on two stages, a family activities area, and food and beverage vendors. On its final day, there’s also the annual Labor Day Parade.

The Last Fling is the Jaycees’ largest fundraiser, with proceeds benefitting area nonprofits that the organization supports. More information about the hours and activities can be found on the Last Fling website.

NCTV17 will be out covering all the fun, with a Facebook live feed from the fest today at 5:15 p.m., and a live stream on both our channel and website on Monday for the parade.
