CHICAGO (CBS) — The Emanuel administration has committed $750,000 in leftover NATO Summit funds to offer more nighttime events at city parks this summer.
WBBM Newsradio Political Editor Craig Dellimore reports the city is greatly expanding its cultural offerings and activities at the parks this summer.
“We roughly did 350 events this year. We’ve doubled it to 700. We had Chicago Shakespeare Theater in the Parks last year; we’re doubling that. This year it’s going to be ‘A Comedy of Errors,’” Chicago Park District Supt. Michael Kelly said.
