Parks are fun, but going to Millennium Park is an authentic Chicago experience. There are many attractions to visit in the urban oasis, including The Cloud Gate (AKA “the bean”) or the Jay Pritzker Pavilion. Although if you plan to experience Millennium Park as the locals do, here are a few events to get you on the green and in the sun.
Free Saturday morning classes are available for all on the Great Lawn now through August 31. The free workout sessions will be held from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. Workouts are 45 minutes long with Tai Chi at 7 a.m., Yoga at 8 a.m., Pilates at 9 a.m. and Zumba®, a Latin-inspired calorie-burning dance fitness party, beginning at 10 a.m.
Made in Chicago Jazz Series
Jazz concerts will start July 25 in the Jay Pritzker Pavilion. Held every Thursday at 6:30 PM, this tradition brings alive the connection Chicago has to Jazz. Events will conclude on August 29, which is also the start of Jazz Fest in Chicago. So wet your whistle and sing along with the tunes, because the events are free and fun to enjoy.
