2016 Summer Event Calendar

iStock_000006617015LargeSummer is just around the corner and while the City of Chicago offers an array of events throughout the season, for those living in the western suburbs, the road trip isn’t always realistic.  Thankfully there is plenty of food, fun and festivities a bit closer to home.  To make it easy, McCleary Group has pulled together a summer event calendar below!  Don’t see a fest in your area? We recommend this article from the Chicago Tribune. Remember, McCleary Group loves community photos, so don’t forget to take and share your pictures on the McCleary Group Facebook page!
