Ah, Labor Day. That wonderful day that arrives each year just in time for the tail end of summer, graciously granting a three-day weekend for the masses to fill with pursuits, noble or otherwise, of a seemingly endless variety.
This weekend in Chicago is packed with events offering a little something to everyone, be they a music lover, a pierogi enthusiast or a lover of quirky plays with theater productions such as "The Granny Diaries."
Each Friday throughout the remainder of the summer, HuffPost Chicago is spotlighting five of that weekend's must-go festivals and other events.
Need still more options? The city also maintains a calendar of neighborhood events taking place throughout Chicago.
