Chicago Day – Worlds Fair Anniversary

Come see me give the address at the Chicago Day Kick Off Event for the 5 year “Historically Chicago” Campaign. Chicago Day was the biggest day of the 1893 Columbia Exposition and set world records for the largest celebration ever held. This party is the first step in bringing back Chicago Day bigger and better than ever.
