Thankful Thursday: Chicago Summers!

It may not look like it today, but summer in Chicago is here! (Finally!)

It’s been a week of record-breaking heat and I say, bring it. After the winter we had and Snowmaggedon 2011, I am ready to take full advantage of what this city has to offer June-September.

Of course, that includes…

STREET FESTS!
Do Division, June 4

DINING AL FRESCO!

CONCERTS!
Dispatch at Millennium Park, June 8

FIREWORKS!
The Navy Pier fireworks are back! The city canceled them last year, but the fireworks were one of my favorite things about summers in Chicago. Here’s a pic from 2009.

I’m already counting down the minutes to this weekend! Old Town Art Fair is this weekend, and I’m hoping to check another off my 30-B4-30 list. Hopefully the rain doesn’t dampen my plans.

What’s your favorite thing about your city in the summer?
