Like baseball and dining alfresco, summer festival season is one of Chicago’s great warm weather traditions.
The South Shore neighborhood is joining the fray with its inaugural summer festival this Saturday from 10:00 AM to 8:00PM. The revelry will take place on 73rd Street between from Stony Island to Ridgeland Avenue.
Vendors, entertainment and a beer and wine garden will be a part of the scene; but I’m personally excited about the free Chicago Architecture Foundation led bus tours through the South Shore neighborhood.
If you’ve never seen the South Shore Cultural Center (the old South Shore Country Club) or the Allan Miller House in person, you’re in for a treat. South Shore has always given me a serious case of house envy.
There are three tour slots that last two hours in length and run from 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM, 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM and 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM. Space is limited, so RSVP for your spot on the tour to firstname.lastname@example.org
Come on down and be a part of a new tradition in the making.
