Chicagoland does not disappoint with it’s plethora of street fests. Beer and wine tents, some mini-carny rides for the kids, yummy local food and just plain ‘fun’ music.
My husband and I never “plan” to make our Taylor Street Festa Italia an official date night since we always seem to wind up there somehow. This year we’re making it real, getting a sitter, and I’m scoring a couple of dances, under the street lights… to someone covering Frank or Dean.
Check out the details and join us please. This weekend, August 5th-8th. They’ve planned some culinary demonstrations, Italian Dancers… there are sure to be a few local arts booths. The casual atmosphere is great, the fun of a festival without the craziness of an uncontrolled crowd.
Oh and did I mention the Italian street vendors? Yum!
