_Here's a million dollar green idea!! Mowtown is a completely green lawn care service. Mowtown will bike to your home (if you live on Chicago's north side) towing their push mowers and make your yard beautiful with no noise, no emissions, no muss, no fuss! And they'll help you set up composting and weed your garden too.
_This Sunday morning, October 5th, Chicago will celebrate its boulevards with the first ever Sunday Parkways. Beautiful boulevards from Kedzie and Logan all the way to Woodward and Jackson will be closed to car traffic. From 9am to 1pm the streets will be open to foot traffic, bikes, strollers, skateboards, and scooters for fun, exercise and play!
Through streets will continue to have crossing access, so watch those street signals! Neighborhoods along the way will be having a giant block party with music and dancing and activity stations, including yoga, Mexican folk dancing, children's games and a free awesome CHIC-A-GO-GO dance party in Garfield Park at noon at Madison and Central Park.
The fun continues on October 26, when the boulevards are closed to cars from 24th and California to Lake and Central Park.
