Hello July! The Start of Summer and Chicago Festivals

If you can’t count on the weather to tell you it’s summer in Chicago, the next best sign is the beginning of the festival season!  While June hosts a number of events, July is really where it all begins. And, if we’re lucky, we can finally put away the winter gear!  From the Taste of Chicago and Movies in the Park to neighborhood festivals and concerts all over the city, this month is the perfect way to celebrate summer. I don’t want you to miss a thing, so we’ve put together a list of some of the top ongoing free events and weekend festivals.  Get ready to enjoy great food, sensational music, wonderful dancing, arts and crafts, and family fun.
