Look for ChiIL Mama this weekend--Remember September

Remember, September is still prime festival season in Chicago.   Nights are crisp and cooler, and despite all the public pools closing, it's still a great time to hit the beaches.   Farmers Markets are at their peak, and neighborhood harvest fests are popping up around town.   Fall is one of the best times to live in The Windy City.  This weekend, we have some tough choices to make.   Here are a few of our top picks.

Thursday:  9/10-13  Redmoon Theatre spectacle concert The Last of My Species  

                   Harvest Fest in Roscoe Village

Saturday:   Hideout Bloodshot Records BBQ with proceeds to benefit 826CHI and Rock for Kids

Sunday:   Kiddieland final count down to closing.   Melrose Park gem, Kiddieland, is a nostalgic trip back to

70's metal flake dune buggies

and wooden roller coasters.

The next few weeks are their last. 

Here's a link to the Kiddieland Amusement Park group on Facebook.   Photo link to pictures I shot last October on Facebook   Mine are #s 14-25.  

Despite numerous fan groups like Save Kiddieland and RIP Kiddieland, days are numbered for this slice of Chicago history.  Come bid Kiddieland a fond farewell.
