It was not…

…a typical Saturday afternoon on State Street here in Chicago.  A ‘festival with no name’ closed the street to traffic from Van Buren Street all the way north to Lake Street.

There were Mexican dancers on the sun-dappled asphalt…

…a fencing demonstration…

…and, curiously, a man and a woman abseiling down the facade of the Wit Hotel!

There were maps every so often, showing what was where (a lot of tents distributing business brochures), but no mention of a title for this unusual presentation.  There was loud music everywhere, sounding very conflicting, and the few businesses I stopped in had no notice of the street closure.

Quite surprising, but on the whole, it made for some good images, don’t you think?
