Open Streets Chicago

Over the weekend, my family and I went into downtown to check out Open Streets Chicago. It was incredible to walk right down the middle of State Street, not worrying about oncoming traffic, and see groups of people perform these random activities. There were activists, musicians, and athletes placed side-by-side with oddities like a giant sandbox and a plot of grass with lawn chairs. You could walk a few blocks and see just about every facet of society.

A trio of classical musicians.
 A sack race for children (and adults).
 A miniature skate park.
A city roller derby group.
