April 22, 2011 - PRLog -- For Ninth Year Historic Grant Park Welcomes Art and Music Festival

WHAT    It wouldn’t be summer without the Grant Park Summer Shade Festival presented each year by the Grant Park Conservancy. With two large Artist Markets, two stages of live music, plenty to eat and drink and special areas for kids, Summer Shade offers a fun way to enjoy the last days of summer.

   Summer Shade kicks off each year with the Adams Realtors 5K Run for the Park, allowing runners and walkers to enjoy the beautiful historic neighborhood on foot. And during the festival, Corks & Forks: A Fine Food & Wine Event welcomes several of the city’s best chefs to show off their abilities and favorite recipes to attendees who also get to enjoy wines and beers from around the world along with cooking demos and wine seminars.

   From families looking for the next great puppet show to adults hoping to whoop it up one last time before fall begins, the Grant Park Summer Shade Festival makes a great way to spend a whole weekend in the great outdoors.

WHO   The Grant Park Summer Shade Festival supports the work of the Grant Park Conservancy. Saturday morning welcomes the Adams Realtors 5K Run for the Park. Grant Park – the city’s oldest public park – was initially established by a gift of 100 acres from the estate of railroad magnate Lemuel Pratt Grant in 1883. Grant Park was once referred to as a resort area due to its natural flowing springs, carriage trails, shaded walking paths and big beautiful trees. Today, Grant Park welcomes more than 2 million visitors each year who still enjoy it as a place of respite in a now busy city.

   The Grant Park Conservancy is a non-profit organization committed to the preservation, restoration and maintenance of historic L.P. Grant Park. www.gpconservancy.org
