The Taste of Chicago

Mar 28, 2008
Everyone loves a good local festival, no matter where it is at and what the theme is. Festivals are just plain fun. Everyone also loves a good meal, particularly when it is of a type of food that he or she has never had the joy of tasting before. If you mix the two of these great vacation aspects, what you end up with is the renowned Taste of Chicago Festival held every year in luxurious Grand Park in Chicago Illinois. This festival of food has become a grand tradition in Chicago, beloved both by the citizens and to those who were fortunate enough to have scheduled their vacation at just the right time of year to attend.

Though the name might fool you, there is actually far more to the Taste of Chicago festival than merely food. There are various different forms of entertainment, restaurants, and more. The festival itself is a treasure trove of fun and exciting times! At the same time, while the main focus area of the Taste of Chicago Festival is within Grand Park, the event is actually celebrated on a citywide level. That means that local restaurants will be having great deals on affordable meals, shops will be having sales, local entertainment venues will be hosting big star performers, and there will be fireworks over Lake Michigan to accent all this.

There will be cuisine to be tried from over seventy major restaurants and fine dining establishments from all over the city, each coming to the park to prove that their food is so much better than the next guys. It will almost seem as if every restaurant in Chicago is fighting to get you to try their food first! That is the kind of star treatment that you have always dreamed of! Your taste buds will jump for joy at the seemingly endless choice of various ethnic foods. You'll find booths and stands with cuisines of all types, such as Italian, Latin, Mediterranean, Cuban, German, and every other ethnicity that you can possibly imagine. Don't be surprised if you even come across foods that you had never considered before, such as Deep Fried Alligator Tail or Golden Baked Rattlesnake. If it can be stuck in an oven or on a stovetop, there is a fairly decent chance that you will find it at this awesome festival of food.

While here you will find that the city has come alive with all kinds of vacation treats and pleasures. There will be rides set up around the city for the kids, sports activities such as marathon races, and tons of other fun filled activities. The only bad aspect of this entire festival is the sad fact that it eventually will end!

Fine dining and fun times twenty four hours per day is what you will find if you plan your next vacation trip along the timeline of next years Taste of Chicago Festival in the windy city of Chicago Illinois
