Summer Festivals
Summer is almost over, but it’s not too late to go out and experience what Chicago has to offer.  We are lucky to have one of the greatest cities right at our finger tips.  Unfortunately, I don’t think we take advantage of exploring the different types of entertainment that the city of Chicago gives us.  Here are a few of the summer festivals and events that I think are a must for this summer.
