Every year, I look forward to this event. The Monument Ave 10k is among the largest runs of its kind in the nation and 22nd in the world. It's a huge party on an historic avenue that happens to be a 10k run. Do you have a favorite yearly event?

I used to love Christmas until it got super commercialized

An international dinner I go to each year. There are tables of authentic dishes from about 25 different countries. I get something from every table...just a couple of bites. So much fun.

It is tremendous fun, especially if you are an adventurous eater. I typically end up with at least two plates of food and have no idea what any of it is! There is always a table for America, which usually has items like hot dogs, pizza, and chicken nuggets...mostly intended for kids.

I would have been happier if I could just have voted "no."

Bonfire night is always fun, except for when it rains and gets cancelled. Other than that id love to go to Oktoberfest one day soon 🍻

Halloween. I love decorating our house and passing out candy.

As far as any sort of festival or anything like that, our schedules change so much that there's nothing that we always know we can do every year.

I like Taste of Chicago although I don't make it there every year.

I would think a lot of food vendors? Chicago, being such a large city, I imagine a giant international food fair of sorts.

Many food vendors, live music, and fireworks. It's a lot of fun!

Sounds like it! I've never visited Chicago outside of O'Hare. If/when I make it there, I'll have to head up during that.

I love the 4th of July here in Utah. The parades, street fairs, and fireworks are awesome!
