These street fairs pop up in different neighborhoods all over the city throughout the summer. Sometimes in a park, often just blocking part of a residential or commercial street. Here is the first one I saw, in a big parking lot next to a high school on the near west side of Chicago. A small roller coaster, a ferris wheel, a few more assorted rides and stands and food. Not too big, not too much. Just enough to be fun. It was a perfectly clear night during Memorial Day weekend. Cool breeze. An otherwise quiet night filled with squeals and laughter from kids in shorts and T-shirts enjoying being out among the lights, rides, and the promise of summer.
