Things to Do in Chicago This Weekend

The summer is getting away from us! We've now entered August and the clock is ticking to get out and enjoy the great weather in this living and breathing city. As part of the 190N team at abc7 here in Chicago, I have honed my ability to recognize a cool event when I see one.

I think one of the things that Chicagoans take for granted is our awesome Chicago River and Millennium Park -- beyond just "The Bean" and the fountains. This week, I've found cool ideas for folks out for a good time on both Saturday morning and Saturday night. Of course, I've found the great fests happening as well (Retro on Roscoe and North Halsted Market Days)!

I think you'll find there's something for everybody here, from families to singles and couples alike. Enjoy!
