VOTE: Best Summer Festival in the Southland

Don't miss the opportunity to vote for what you feel is the BEST summer festival in your community or a surrounding town. It'll face off against others from the area for the title of the most-loved festival in the Southland.

The south suburbs are filled with a great variety of summer festivals. There's carnivals, food-centric events, concerts, arts fairs and more. 

Summer festivals are a great way to spend a day with the family outdoors, experience new art and culture or just do a little day drinking.

I demand that Stevie Nicks rename her song "Gypsy" to "No-Mad" so my feelings can be restored from the hurtful comments of the past.

And may I suggest another event to be added to the voting list - The "One Hundred Seventies Block of an Un-Named Street Shoplift-athon"

What exactly is a "fake" craft?

I nominate St. Donatus Feast and Carnival in Blue Island, Aug 1st thru 5th. 103 years and still going strong!

I love to see a venue like Ravinia come to the Southland.
