Memorial Day weekend is definitely the kick-off to summer in Chicago. We get an extra day off to spend with the family and enjoy the warm weather. Check out these ideas to make it a fun weekend.
We've put together a full day itenerary to help you family celebrate Memorial Day. From parades to patriotic desserts, we've got you covered.
Enjoy kite flying, toddler hay mazes, obstacle courses, hayrides through the fields and a ladybug release (2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday). Plus, check out the two bull calves, baby goats, lambs and pigs and mid-size and full sized chickens.
The wreath laying ceremony will begin at 11 a.m. at the Eternal Flame on Daley Plaza. The parade kicks off at noon and proceeds south on State Street from Lake Street to Van Buren Street. Participants include many area high schools' Drum and Bugle Corps as well as many veterans groups.
