A Weekend of Summerfests

By Rachelle Bowden in Miscellaneous on Jul 21, 2006 6:08PM

2006_07_wickerpark_summerfest.jpgThis weekend is the weekend of "summerfests". Seriously, how many do we really need? We've got Wicker Park Summerfest, River North Summerfest, Uptown Unity Summerfest, Our Lady of Lourdes Summerfest, and the 21st Ward Family Summerfest. Not to mention, Sheffield Garden Walk, the Jubilee Gospel Fest and the 29th Ward Family Gospel Picnic & Back to School Event are also happening. And Mullet Fest at the Cell. Whew!

Stay cool, have fun, take photos. Don't forget: To be entered in the weekend festivities photo contest you need to have your photos uploaded and tagged "chicagoist" in Flickr by Sunday at midnight. Monday we'll pick a winner and feature his/her photo on Chicagoist.
