DeKalb County Featured on Good Day Chicago

Last Wednesday, October 22, DeKalb County was featured in a Good Day Chicago segment titled “Enjoy Illinois This Fall.” Debbie Armstrong, Executive Director of the DeKalb County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, made an appearance on the morning program alongside Mini Abe!


The Illinois Trail of Terror was the topic of discussion. Great fall destinations and events throughout DeKalb County, like Jonamac Orchard and the Sycamore Pumpkin Festival, were highlighted as fabulous one-day getaways for Chicagoans.

Check out the interview and make plans to enjoy DeKalb County while the weather is still fine!
