"In partnership with the City of Chicago and the Chicago Park District, Redmoon Theater presents The Great Chicago Fire Festival, celebrating Chicago’s epic resurgence and strength after the Great Fire of 1871, and the grit of its people that propelled us forward to build anew."
Have you ever been to a Redmoon Theater performance? If not, you're in for a treat.

and if you're anything like me, the beauty of the spectacle will probably make you cry.

I really want to see this! Is the location the exact place to meet or will we be winging it?

travertina - we'll likely be winging it.

We are still on! Not sure of exact time and location, I will post an update when those details firm up.

We are going to get there early and camp with chairs and blankets because we are crazy. We'll update with location later, but it'll be a safe bet to look for a band of knitters.

Change of plans. We are on our way down now. We are going to hit the food trucks and wander the bazaar. More when we get there.
