In addition to being able to sample various culinary offerings from all across Chicago, the Taste is another free music event offered by the city. The bill for this night was the patriotic orchestral sounds of the Grant Park Orchestra as well as a 20 minute firework display. The music and fireworks were free, but the food was not...unless you brought your own items or were lucky enough to find someone to share with you.
The vendor system for pretty much all of the "free" events in Chicago follow along to the same tune
After wadding through the food area...I made my way over to find the group of people I was there to meet up with. I spotted the canopy across the lawn very easily and sat down to talk, eat, and drink with friends until the music and fireworks started. Once the sun went down, the Orchestra came on stage played a few different compositions as the sky slowly grew darker. The firework display was the next highlight of the night...accompanied by the orchestra. All in all it was a pretty good night.
