I had the opportunity to visit Chicago’s new Millennium Park over the weekend. To quote Cindy Pritzker, “Isn’t this the spiffiest thing you ever saw?”. Yes Cindy, yes it is and thank you for all of your contributions that made it possible.
Chicago threw one helluva party in a way that only Chicago could do. The number of activities and events that were available for all ages was simply staggering — and they were free. From rap to jazz to classical all forms of music were available. There was dancing. There was drumming. There was juggling. I spent most of Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday in the park and I don’t think that I saw everything that there was to see!
(I will be updating this entry with pictures and comments on the new park. Check back for updates!)
