Hello my pretties. The work week is winding down and you're probably finalizing plans for the weekend. Make CHICAGO'S ANNUAL GREEN FESTIVAL one of your stops on Saturday or Sunday. Weather is going to be sunny and warm. It's the perfect start to the Spring/Summer season and I've got your FREE PASS to the festival.
