Summer officially kicked off this week, but in Chicago we've been soaking up the sunshine for weeks with a jam-packed schedule of summer events.

Each Friday throughout the summer, HuffPost Chicago is sharing our five picks for that weekend's must-go festivals. We all know the big-ticket Pride Parade, Gospel Fest and Green Music Fest are up this weekend, so we thought we'd show a little love to some lesser-known, but equally worthwhile festivals around town.

Need still more options? The city maintains a relatively thorough calendar of neighborhood festivals throughout Chicago.

Have another favorite you'll be hitting up that we missed? Let us know in the comments.
