It’s officially street festival season in Chicago!
For the first time in two years, most street festivals in Chicago have returned to full scale and scale, with new events also scheduled.
However, this weekend’s weather may not fully cooperate as rain and storms are possible on Friday and Saturday.
A little cooling is also expected from Saturday, with highs in the upper 50s to near 70 degrees.
Sunday could be a perfect day to spend outdoors, with partly sunny skies and cool temperatures in the mid-50s to mid-60s.
Here’s what’s happening this weekend in the coming weeks:
