We’re halfway through September! While saying goodbye to summer makes me a little sad, I’m pretty excited to break out my new fall pieces and Zelda is too! Fall activities in the city are just getting started and we are beyond excited for the Midnight Circus series. If you haven’t been, this one is definitely worth checking out! Additionally, don’t forget to show some love to our furry friends. Stop by Dylan’s Candy Bar this weekend and bring home a new four-legged pal. Get more details (and the skinny on a few other fun events) below!

Midnight Circus in Wicker Park: This awesome event is back! Catch the circus in Wicker Park this weekend where there are a variety of showtimes.

If you and your crew find yourselves in need of something do to while you visit this popular spot, I’ve got you covered!

Laurelwood Brew Pub: Featured on several local kid-friendly restaurant lists, this spot looks pleasing for the whole crew. They have a killer kids menu and we suspect this will be a favorite among craft beer loving parents too.
Portland Children’s Museum: If you need something to do on a rainy day, take the kids to the city’s children’s museum. They have a variety of activities to fit each babe’s preferences!
