If April Showers Bring May Flowers…

Then what do May Flowers bring?

Pretty in Millennium Park!

MAYFEST!!!!

…and June Fest and July Fest and August Fest and September Fest.

It took awhile, but spring is FINALLY here in Chicago! But don’t you think we’ve waited long enough for spring and we’ve endured enough winter that summer should come right away??

Well. I kinda think so!

For a list of what’s going on this WHOLE SUMMER in Chicago, you should definitely check out Metromix’s Chicago Festival Guide! It lists a ton of things going on in Chicago this summer. Just this weekend we have Chicago Mayfest which even has a pet parade on Sunday!!

Coming up on the 24th is the 8th annual awesome Bike the Drive (which I have yet to participate in!) along Columbus Drive and Jackson Boulevard. One site says that a public bike rental system like the ones they have in Paris was in the works (and those are cool! Check out this picture my boyfriend took of the bikes while he was in Paris), but is put on hold because of the economy.

But back to our happy topic at hand — check out Metromix’s Chicago Festival Guide. Now you have no excuse to say you did nothing over the summer!
