Around Town This Weekend : Chicago

Around Town This Weekend : Chicago

Chicago has experienced quite the heat wave the last couple of weeks! The streets are filled with people waiting to soak up some outdoor activities, and word on the street is that spring is right around the corner.
Chicagoans put up with their fair share of less than the desirable weather in the winter months, but I think we can all agree, there is no better place to be than in Chicago on a warm day.
This weekend is a definite pre-cursor for whats to come in the next months!
Checkout some of what Chicago has to offer for families this weekend!

Bonus! MommyCon is introducing DaddyCon to their event series. DaddyCon is the ultimate dad focused parenting convention. The event is focused on bringing fatherhood to the forefront of the parenting conversation. Debuting in Chicago on March 3-4, 2018, the event will feature two days of interactive sessions, workshops, exhibitors, giveaways and the Dad Games Competition. With over a dozen speakers, the event convention will take a playful approach to discussing all aspects of fatherhood: from being there at birth through every diaper change, scraped knee and ballet recital. The conversation will explore first-hand accounts from todays most prominent father figures while exploring the bond fathers have with their children.
