Sun City, Bring your grandchildren to downtown Huntley on Saturday so that everyone can enjoy the fresh produce, crafts, bike parade, and other children-oriented events. I live in Sun City and am volunteering to help out with the event and would like to see more of my fellow residents connected to the town where we all live.
