What’s Happening This Weekend in Chicago: Beaches, Shows & Summer Stars!


It’s Memorial Day Weekend and the official start of summer… even though the weather matched better for all that last week! But one monkey don’t stop the show!

Chicago’s beaches are officially open for the summer… and temps will be warm enough by Monday to really enjoy it, but go on and get out there to enjoy the sun today!

Navy Pier has extended their hours and fireworks are tonight at 9pm and Maggie Daley Park (next to Millennium Park) has opened and you can do mini-golf, the climbing wall and rent rollerblades or scooters.

If you’re a fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race, you’ll love Drive ‘N Drag featuring the stars of the competition in performance at Soldier Field this weekend… it’s a drive-in show in the parking lot at 7 and 9:30pm tonight and tomorrow.

And Art on the Mart has teamed up with Adler Planetarium for Astrographics… which projects images of outer space from telescopes around the world onto the side of Merchandise Mart. The showings are at 9 & 9:30pm every night.

Whatever you choose, have fun and don’t let me EVER hear you say you don’t have anything to do!
