Are there any shows worth visiting arouond Chicagoland this weekend? At one time Memorial Day was a big deal with some great shows in the area. Always fun to visit a show to jump start the summer during Memorial day weekend..

Spectacular is in Oak Forest for the Gaelic Park Irish Fest.
Windy City is in Bollingbrook near I355.
Fantasy is in Mt Prospect I believe on Rand Rd.
Astro is (I THINK) in Carpentersville on Rte 25, but you might want to check NAME's schedule first.
Skinner is in Loves Park (usually looks real good up there)

Are the Briggs' back in town yet? I think I played a spot with them the week after memorial day last year...

Also, Rockowheel, if you're lookin for what's the best one to visit..Spectacular's Irish Fest is a goot bet. Admission is $15 and $12 for kids which includes unlimited rides and live bands. They also always have magic shows and stuff for kids in a separate tent. It 's more of a festival than just a carnival.
