This weekend is the 7th annual Glenwood Avenue Arts Fest. The entertainment is widely (and wildly) varied: ear-jammin' honkey tonk by the Hoyle Brothers, watch the thrilling fire dances of Pyrotechniq, and enjoy a lingerie fashion show by Chicago designer George Melichar.

The Glenwood Avenue Arts Fest (GAAF) is a free, weekend-long event that features artists, open studios and live entertainment on three outdoor stages. Experience art, theater, music, as well as food and drink, on the cobblestone streets of the Glenwood Avenue Arts District in Chicago's historic Rogers Park neighborhood.

Be sure to check out Jenny's Mosaics, too, one of dozens of local artists showing their work:
