What it is: You know festival season is kicking into high gear when Lakeview’s Mayfest rolls out the red carpet. This three day festival has all the usual suspects: great bands, incredible food and ice cold beer (in an outdoor beer garden). Plus, Lakeview is one of Chicago’s most popular neighborhoods – so when you leave the festival, you’ll be in the middle of an area already brimming with great restaurants and bars. So what are you waiting for – get this summer’s festival season started out right!
