For our lunch break this afternoon, we headed down to Daley Plaza for the Chicago 2016 rally to celebrate the city's being chosen as a Candidate City. The rally featured a bevy of athletes and speakers, including a special appearance by Chicago resident/Illinois Senator/Presidential Candidate Barack Obama. The new logo was unveiled as well, and it's...exactly the same as the last one with the Olympic rings added to the bottom. Here are some pictures we snapped of the festivities before the rain hit.
