Two-Day Pride Fest an Event All Lakeview Can Enjoy

Planned Property Management Is Happy to Have Such a Fun and Vibrant Event Convenient to Its Apartments in Lakeview

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Oct 14, 2014) - The Pride Fest was held this year on June 21-22 along North Halsted, between Belmont and Addison. The event features two days of performances on two stages, arts, crafts, food, and other attractions. Headlining is Oscar-winning actress and Grammy-winning singer Jennifer Hudson. The event is traditionally held as a primer for the Pride Parade, which takes place the following weekend.

The event was hosted by the Northalsted Business Alliance, which was founded in 1980 by a small group of merchants in the neighborhood. The Alliance is part of the reason why this region has such a thriving shopping and entertainment district. Sponsoring events like the Pride Fest helps attract a diverse population of customers to the area and ensures the profitability and growth of the region.

Jasko Omervic of Planned Property Management said of Pride Fest, "Although this is a celebration that says it's all about GLBT pride, this party is really great fun for anyone who wants to attend. From some of the best bands and performers you might see at any street fest in Chicago to some really great food to the raucous drag queen shows, there's a lot to enjoy at this event. It's one of the great things about living at a property like 515 W Barry Avenue, which is less than a ten minute walk away."

In some previous years, the Pride Fest was held as a 1-day event, but has been expanded back into a larger festival due to popular demand. There was a $10 suggested gate donation. For more information visit or
