The shops, restaurants, and museums of Bishop Hill will be welcoming spring with a Spring Fling Weekend on April 1-3. A variety of discounts and sale offers can be found at participating businesses and restaurants during normal business hours. After a day of shopping, stop by the Filling Station on Friday or the Colony Inn for a tasty dinner. Visitors who collect signatures from 6 of the shops or museums will be entered into a drawing for a gift basket at the Colony Store. Signature forms can be picked up from any of the shops and museums. The drawing will be Sunday at 3:30 and you do not have to be present to win. Visitors are invited to participate in the activities found around town.  Call 309-927-3898 or email for more information.
