Some Summer – So Far

The fleeting sounds of summer are the cicadas that buzz for only a few weeks, the fireflies that light up a walk in the dusk, the flowers you only see once a year, the smell of fresh cut grass and the dirty feet from hitting the streets to get a taste of all the festivals. After months and months of snow, the festival season in Chicago is as lively and warm as anywhere in the world, if not better. We’re in full stride now and the midway mark is just around the corner, so it’s time for a quick (comprehensive) recap. Here’s to an even better second half of the season…
