We’re making some progress on WHERE the truck show will land in each community in October. I don’t want to jinx it, but do want to share our progress.
In Pilsen, we are very honored to have the Growing Station Community Garden host our performance in celebration of their Harvest Fest. We can’t wait to meet all the gardeners this summer in preparation!
In Logan Square, the Alderman approved our request to perform in the middle of Logan Square on the green near the Illinois Centennial Monument. (Just figuring out the appropriate permitting.)
In the North Center neighborhood, we’ve been in talks with City Park managers and Park Advisory Council members to perform on the Clark Park playlots–the last remaining community green space on the very site of the Riverview Amusement Park (closed in 1967). If you don’t know about Riverview, you should learn! We plan to commemorate it in our show.
