Millenium Park Free Concerts



At Millenium Park in Chicago they have great free concerts on the lawn most nights during the summer. Here is a list if you are interested. On Thursday it rained a bit but cleared up and they had a world music concert. Even if you aren't a big fan of the music you can picnic and have a glass of wine (they now have a restaurant stand near the stage and you can buy a cold beer or glass of sangria if it is hot - sometimes that is better than wine). Note that if you double click on the photo above so that you can see the detail and look at the Smurfit-Stone building in the upper left (the white building with the two triangle tops that are "split") you can see some scaffolding up there - apparently they are fixing windows or something - must be interesting to work up there.





The world music concert seemed to bring out the "twirlers" and people were having fun. I haven't been to a "jam band" concert in forever so maybe this is common but I hadn't seen it before. A good time was had by all.

It's nice that the park district gives the Deadheads and hippies a safe place to go.

Geez Louise I can't believe there is still such a thing as twirlers.

A sad, recurring theme...
