Labor Day weekend is here and that means the end of summer is in sight. If you’re in Chicago for the weekend, make sure to check out some of the activities that are happening around the city and enjoy the summer weather while it lasts!

The 35th Annual Chicago Jazz Festival kicked off yesterday and will be running through Sunday, September 1. Showcased alongside national and international artists are some of Chicago’s very own talented jazz performers. In addition to the lively performances, there is also an Art Fair where you can find paintings, jewelry, photography, clothing and much more.

If you haven’t had the chance to head down to Navy Pier to see the fireworks, this weekend is your last chance! Saturday’s fireworks show will be the Pier’s last until Halloween. Head down early to take a stroll along the Pier and stop in some of the shops before staking out your spot. The show can also be viewed from other beaches along Lake Shore Drive.

Remix Chicago (formerly known as Ravenswood Remix) is headed to Logan Square this weekend and bringing “all things remixed, reused and recycled.” Located on Milwaukee Ave between Fullerton and California, Remix Chicago will offer an array of re-purposed arts and crafts, food vendors, activities for kids, informative workshops, and live music. The event will run from 12pm to 10pm on Saturday and Sunday.

If you’re headed out of town this weekend, you’ll join the more than 34 million Americans who are hitting the road for the last vacation of summer. No matter what you have planned, we hope you have a safe and enjoyable Labor Day weekend!

Just a reminder – All Lou Malnati’s carry-out locations will be open 11am-9pm on Monday, September 2nd. Our full-service restaurants will operate under their normal business hours.
