Five best family-friendly summer fests in Chicago

Five best family-friendly summer fests in Chicago
Not all Chicago summer festivals are created equal. However, while some events are definitely geared more towards fun-loving adults, Chicago does offer a number of summer fests that are focused on families. I thought I would share some of my favorite fests. Get those calendars out!
 
Do Division. This annual event kicks off summer street fest season in the Wicker Park neighborhood. This year’s event takes place from May 30-June 1, 2014 on Division Street from Ashland to Leavitt. A $5 donation gets you into the expansive children’s area. The family-friendly offerings are numerous and varied.  Look for bounce houses, pony rides, face painting and more.
