Lakefront Carnival & Entertainment Festival
Update: New dates for the Carnival are August 1st through 4th, 2013. Updated information is here.
This is the first we've heard of anything like this at the lakefront, and it seems very ambitious, but we got notice of "Chicago Uptown Lakefront Carnival & Entertainment Festival, June 20th – July 7th, 2013. From Lawrence to Wilson, from Lake Shore Drive to Lake Michigan. 18 days of fun for all ages. Free Admission, Food, Drink, Amazing Carnival Rides, Music and Entertainment, Arts and Crafts and More!"
They are currently seeking vendors. Really, there's a lot planned: Two entertainment stages, five nights of fireworks, carnival rides, ten beer gardens, a DJ/dance area, a kids' area, cop and firefighter nights, and a food court. Sounds on the scale of a state fair to us.
