Chicago Summer Festival Guide – May and June 2015

Chicago Apartments, Summer Festivals

May is an exciting time of year. It means the winter is finally over and summer has come once again to this amazing city we all call home. Another great thing about May is Memorial Weekend, the official start of Chicago summers and it includes one of our most favorite things, beach openings!

Yet the fun doesn’t stop there, it’s also the start of our summer festival season. Chicago has always been known for its outdoor festivals which on any given week you can surly find one. Sprawling from downtown’s Gold Coast, the neighborhoods of Lincoln Park, to the ever bustling Lakeview, you be hard pressed to not find something fun.

At PPM we have buildings in walking distance from some of Chicago’s top fests. From 2756 North Pine Grove’s front row seat to the Pride parade to 1120 North LaSalle’s skip to Old Town’s Art Fair and amazing pool, it’s no wonder living at PPM could be so summer fun!
