West Fest 2016, Chicago 

The three-day festival was filled with people from all walks of life, as West Town sits in the middle of the West Side, drawing people from Logan Square, to Humbolt Park, Wicker Park,  Bucktown, River West, University City / Little Italy and beyond! Despite the occasional heat wave on Friday, the weather was perfect for the weekend to be filled with an eclectic mix music, vendors, and people... (and dogs... and pigs!). One of my favorite aspects of West Fest was the diversity, not only of the people and DJ's, but also the mini-areas within the fest itself. The kid zone was complete with blow up castles, mini trains and donkey rides, but even better yet, A PET ZONE that featured a charity dog wash for all the hot pooches (see pictures below!) and a great food truck circle area! My favorite was Jerk Grill (their jerk rubbed chicken in particular). No, not "you're a jerk" type of jerk, mouthwatering Jamaican spices kind of Jerk!  Also a special thank you to Andrea from Little Shoe Films for the recap video!


Enough talk, See West fest in action!
