After an inaugural event that failed to bring the heat (and flames), the Great Chicago Fire Festival is asking for a mulligan. This year, the closing ceremony moves to Northerly Island, where Redmoon Theater is organizing an featuring a neighborhood bazaar, performance stages, food vendors and more. The evening will conclude with a burning building and an explosive fireworks display. Here's hoping that the spark actually fly this time around.
