Celebrate spring this Saturday at the 606's Walk with Blossoms fest

Now that the sun is shining and the flowers are blooming, we know you're ready for spring in Chicago. You can celebrate the season (and the arrival of weather worth leaving your apartment to experience) on the 606 Saturday with music, arts, poetry and family friendly activities.

A Walk with Blossoms is the name of the 606's upcoming spring festival, which will take place from 11am to 3pm at Walsh Park and the Ridgeway Trailhead. Guests will be able to see what's in bloom along the popular North Side trail, become a "citizen scientist" for the afternoon, or make beuaitful flower wear and stroll the Bloomingdale Trail in style. The event will also include musical performances by the Lawrence Peters Outfit (Walsh Park), Opera-Matic (Damen Arts Plaza), Mariachi Mexico Vivo (Humboldt Overlook) and the Mountainaires (Ridgeway Trailhead), as well as various kids activities (including plenty of arts and crafts) throughout the trail.

So get outside this weekend and enjoy the changing seasons on the 606—it's just one more reason why spring makes us better Chicagoans.
