Chicago Events June 29-30: Fests, Art Shows, Music and More
Jimmy Buffet performs on Northerly Island Saturday.

With Chicago still on a high from yesterday’s over two million person celebration honoring our Chicago Blackhawks bringing home the Stanley Cup with a parade and rally, not to mention, the Fourth of July less than a week away, you might think that the last weekend in June would be a quiet one, but you’d be wrong.

Here are some of Chicago’s events for today and tomorrow starting off with the biggest, The Gay Pride Parade. Although the Pride Parade will probably not outdraw the Hawks celebration, nearly one million are expected.
