Festivals are Just Around the Corner

In honor of this rainy but unusually mild February day, we at Sloopin are getting anxious for the Spring and Summer. As you're well aware, this is the time when Chicagoans and Sloopers arise from the depths of winter hibernation and enjoy all there is to enjoy about the city.

One of our favorite things about the South Loop is it's proximity to Grant Park. With that comes an enormous amount of events in our front yard ranging from large scale productions like Lollapalooza to intimate smaller gatherings like Chicago's 'Movies in the Park' series. Stay tuned to Sloopin as we will do our best to update you on news, schedules and general information about the events.

Our first look is at something we unfortunately didn't get a chance to attend last year, Columbia College's Manifest Urban Arts Festival. There is a wide variety of activities and shows during the festival and in 2009 it looks like it will be primarily put on by the students, faculty and people associated with the College. The event will be taking part all over the Columbia campus which extends throughout the South Loop.
Mark your calendars because May 15th isn't that far away.
