Springtime in Chi is one of our favorite times as it’s packed full of fun activities and festivals to get us ready for the summertime weather. With that in mind, here’s a handful of amazing events you can attend this spring to get in that warm weather mood. We hope to see you at at least one!
Starting off with one of our very favorites as we designed and installed an amazing backdrop for a special photo-op with a mermaid! The flower show ends this weekend so be sure to stop by sometime this week. If you want to sit with and have a photo taken with the mermaid she will be at Macy’s on State St. on Friday from 12pm-2pm.
Chicagoans love their food truck and if you’re included in that group this event is for you. This festival will be packed full with 20 amazing food truck, live music, and a Sangria garden! It takes place on April 21, will we see you there? Tickets are free so there’s no reason not to!
Happening on the lower west side, this parade is held to remember the victory the Mexican forces had over the invading French army in the Battle of Puebla on 5 May, 1862. This family-friendly parade is full of food, beverages, crafts, and more! This year the parade is actually being on Sunday, May 6th.
If you’re a beer drinker this event is definitely up your alley. Complete with tailgate activities, master brewers, informative beer trivia, build your own pretzel necklace (you’ll find us here crafting our perfect new accessory) and you can even vote for your favorite brew! Tickets are on sale now but the even is on May 5th.
Maybe beer isn’t your thing and that’s ok because Chicago has something special for all your wine drinkers out there as well. The Lincoln Square Wine Stroll is the perfect opportunity to visit some of your favorites and learn about new local businesses too! With over 40 businesses participating, this event is huge and has multiple route options from Lincoln Square to Ravenswood. Tickets available now for this April 26th event.
