Happy Hollow To Get Makeover, Including Permanent Amphitheater

Illinois State Fair officials say Happy Hollow will never go back to being the home of the fair’s carnival rides.


But they hope a makeover of the area just inside the main gate will help a new generation of fairgoers make different memories.


Fair officials announced a three-to-five year makeover plan for Happy Hollow Tuesday, including plans for a permanent amphitheater.


Tuesday’s fair preview also included more Grandstand announcements, including a show by rapper Pitbull and the return of the free Million Dollar Quartet concert.


Two Grandstand dates still haven’t been booked.
