1. Get Footloose at Chase Park
Everybody cut loose! Pack a blanket, grab your friends and catch the classic film under the stars tonight. (Chase Park, 4701 N Ashland Ave, 8:30pm. Free.)

2. See the very funny Cristela Alonzo live
Still mourning the cancellation of Cristela's hilarious ABC sitcom? Fear not because tonight you can see her in person. No doubt she'll even poke fun at her sitcom's cancellation and bring all the laughs. (Zanies, 1548 N Wells St, 8pm. $30.)

3. Show your pride at the Lakefront Pride Party
Kick off your Gay Pride weekend at this annual lakefront party. Bring your beads and boas to the party that also features a 5K race. The outdoor lakefront bash benefits the Center on Halsted and will have go-go boys and drinks on-hand. DJs Adam LeBlanc and Matthew Harvat of Sixteen Candles will provide fun dance beats. (Diversey Harbor, 2601 N Cannon Dr, music 6pm-10pm; race kicks off at 7:30pm. Free.)
