Millennium Park Family Fun Festival

Located under the big tent at Chase Promenade North (201 E. Randolph St.), the Family Fun Festival, presented by Millennium Park Foundation, offers daily events and activities for kids of all ages. The festival is held daily from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and runs from June 19 through August 20.

“My daughters and I love going to the Family Fun Festival in Millennium Park,” says New Eastside resident Nicole Decker. “We go for the musical perfor-

mances and stay for story time. It is nice that the crafts are different every week. We look forward to it every summer.”

The Activity Zone arts and crafts presented by a different sponsor each week, have, in the past, included Lurie Garden, the Museum of Science and Industry, the Art Institute and Looking- glass Theatre.

New Eastside resident Reemaa Konkimalla has been attending the Family Fun Festival for several years.

“Each year we are amazed with the di- versity of the participating companies. My son has a proud collection of hand- made puppets from Chicago Theater, an architectural bridge from Chicago Architecture Foundation and miniature Lego creations by MSI.”
