Celebrating Memorial Day in the Windy City might be the actual most wonderful day - or entire weekend - of the year. The summer is starting, it's getting warm out after a long winter, and there so many events to attend, restaurant patios to try out, and parks to experience that you'll wish you had more three days to enjoy it.
Here are some of our favorite Chicago events happening this weekend, as well as our favorite things to do on Memorial Day in Chicago (and summer weekends in general)!
1. The Memorial Day parade runs along State Street from Lake to Van Buren, and it's always a lovely spectacle.
2. Follow that up with a trip around the City in a Garden in the Lurie Garden at Millennium Park.
3. And kick off the summer fireworks season…
