LOOP

Ferris Fest is this weekend, May 20th - 22nd. What does that mean? It means that there are events celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the 1986 movie, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, from Lake Forest to Chicago. One of the featured stops during the weekend schedule is the painstakingly accurate recreation of Ferris' bedroom, by Toronto artist/designer Sarah Keenlyside, on display at the Virgin Hotel (203 N. Wabash Ave.) from 9:00am - 5:00pm this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. There will also be a live recreation of the famous "Twist and Shout" parade scene from the movie but you must purchase a ticket to be notified of when and where this parade will take place. Follow the link above for more details. Save Ferris!

OAK PARK

Every third Friday of the month from 6:00pm - 10:00pm, Oak Park welcomes everyone to their Third Friday Gallery Walks that showcase special discounts and events at the galleries along the Oak Park Arts District on Harrison Street from Elmwood Avenue to Austin Boulevard. Tomorrow's third Friday of the month, 5/20, is extra special because it kicks off the Spring festival, What's Blooming on Harrison on Saturday, 5/21, from 11:00am - 7:00pm. This family-oriented event will include a children's carnival, live music, dancing, craft demonstrations, and Family Fun Activities. There will also be arts and crafts for purchase from local and select guest artists. Come join the festivities on Harrison Street between Cuyler and Humphrey Avenues.

LINCOLN SQUARE

Stomp and Shout located at 4668 N. Manor Avenue, close to Lincoln Square, offers a three year music and creative play program for kids aged 8 months to 4 years old to help bolster language, listening, and socialization skills in fun, creative ways. They provide 45 minute classes that engage children through music and imaginative play with participation from their caretakers, guided by professional teachers and musicians. All are welcome to check out their free event to see what Stomp and Shout has to offer your children and the community. Their Neighborhood Kick-Off Party is from 10:00am to 2:00pm this Saturday, 5/21. There will be two Imagination Parades, one launching at 10:30am and the other at 12:30pm for a little 2.5-block parade where stomping and shouting will be encouraged. The three-piece Stomp and Shout Jam Band will provide a live concert after each parade plus art projects and more. It's a free event but RSVPing is helpful for an approximate attendance head count. Email Parties@StompAndShoutChicago.com and specify which parade time works best for you and your young one(s).
