I wanted to let you know that my absolute favorite free family event in all of Chicago is coming up next month -- Mayor Daley's Kids and Kites Festival. Of all of the free family programming I have attended (which is quite a bit), I enjoyed this event the most (my husband and kiddos agree).
This event used to take place two times a year (in the fall and spring), but because of budget cuts, the Mayor's Office of Special Events cut it back to just one -- so you don't want to miss it.
The Kids and Kites Festival will take place on May 1, 2010 at Cricket Hill (Lincoln Park at Montrose and Lake Shore Drive) from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
I will post about the Kids and Kites Festival again closer to the actual date to fill you in on all of the fun details. But trust me -- excellent, FREE family events like this don't come along that often.
See you there?
