Chi-Town Clown Revue

Clowns aren't just for kids anymore. In fact, some clowns aren't for kids at all. Sometimes childish, sometimes raunchy, and always outrageous, the Chi-Town Clown Revue boasts a makeup-spattered stable of more than six dozen jesters, mimes, buffoons, and weirdos. Every show includes a rowdy four-square tournament and a demonstration of experimental clowning, and ends with an all-out pie fight open to audience members. This run will also feature the self-declared "World's Greatest Mime," Honeybuns, who demonstrates improbable grace in a pastry-shaped fat suit.

Chicago Park District

In the spirit of the city motto, "Urbs in horto" (City in a Garden), Chicago established its first parks in 1869. The Chicago Park District as it exists today was created in 1934 and holds sway over 8,200 acres of open space, including 31 beaches, 40 nature areas, and upward of 570 parks. But the park district provides access to more than just the green expanses of its outdoor domain; its facilities harbor the waxed hardwood of indoor basketball courts, the chlorinated splashes of swimming pools, and other features that facilitate active lifestyles. Park administrators offer athletic programming year round, as well as seasonal events such as autumn pumpkin patches and summer's Movies in the Park, part of the Chicago Park District’s Night Out in the Parks initiative, which features more than 750 citywide cultural and arts activities. The park district also oversees many local civic landmarks, including the iconic Buckingham Fountain.
