Memorial Day Festivities in Chicagoland

Summer 2018 kicks-off this weekend, and that means three days of Memorial Day fun. If you’re not jetting off to the lake house, check out what’s going on right in your backyard:

Chicago’s Memorial Day Parade

Take a moment and honor our heroes at Chicago’s annual Memorial Day parade. It’s one of the largest Memorial Day Parades in the nation, and it truly is an experience not to miss. Read more about what makes this parade special.

Holy Molè!

Grab your amigos and head to Pilsen for their annual Molè de Mayo street festival. You’ll enjoy a mole cook-off, live music, and lucha libre wrestling performances. How can you go wrong with that? Get info here.

Bikin’ on by on L.S.D.

Join hundreds of fit and ambitious people at Bike the Drive this Sunday. That’s right, Lake Shore Drive is closed to cars and open to bicyclists ready to make the journey from the Museum of Science and Industry to Bryn Mawr Avenue on two wheels. Here’s how to participate in five hours of carefree riding.

39th Annual Gem, Mineral and Fossil Show

There’s nothing wrong with spending your holiday weekend indoors looking at rocks. If you agree, you can rock on with your tribe at the Kane County Fairgrounds on Saturday and Sunday. Here’s the scoop.

Red, White, and BBQ

Live music, an all age carnival, and the best BBQ vendors in the Midwest. If that doesn’t scream summer, nothing does. Check out this three-day event at Ty Warner Park in Westmont.
