Now that the flowered headdresses and fanny packs from a successful Lollapoloza been put away, Chicago’s other highlights are on the top of our minds.  We’ve compiled the top activities and events happening in the city over the next few weekends.  There’s a lot of summer left and, as always, a lot to enjoy in Chicago.

Broadway in Chicago - (August 5th) Tonight you can sample the best of Broadway wile relaxing under Pritzker Pavilion.  Headlining the evening is the cast of Once, Evita, and Million Dollar Quartet and many more.  

Chicago Air and Water Show – (August 17-18Catch the high-flying acrobatics from basically anywhere in the city.  Haul that lawn chair on to the roof of your building, grab the family and sit by Buckinham Fountain, or just stroll down the lake shore and watch spectacular feats on land, air, and sky.

Clark After Dark – (August 15th)The River North festival offers great live music, local homemade food and more.  What makes this festival special is that funds support Illinois troops and their families.

A Clown Car Named Desire - (Check their website for dates and times) This Second City show has been described as a spectacular night of illusion with multitasking mothers, hyper hipsters and long term monogamous couples.  Hilarity is ensured to ensue.

Free workouts in the Park – (Saturdays, 7-11 am)Saturday morning kick your weekend off right with a workout among iconic architecture in Millennium Park.  Classes are offered every hour from 7 am through 11 am.
