It is going to be a great weekend in the Chicago area — with some excellent summer festivals. But what should you do?
Summer in Chicago means one thing: festival season. We serves as your ultimate guide for celebrations throughout the warm months, from May to October. So many fests, so little time. Almost every neighborhood around the city throws a local event, from north to south, east to west. Most community celebrations offer food, activities for all ages and live entertainment and are usually free with a suggested donation that benefits the neighborhood. Don’t miss out on food and music events.
Pull out your calendar and start writing these down. You’ll want to make the most of this weekend.
