The annual Magnificent Mile Shopping Festival returns to North Michigan Avenue this Friday, spanning close to two weeks and bringing with it a handful of new events. The fest will kick off with A Magnificent Taste, a ticketed foodie event with gourmet snacks and specialty cocktails from 15 of the state's top restaurants. Pop-up stores will be set up on Saturday and Sunday for ShopFest, with giveaways, samples, and exclusive deals to take advantage of over the weekend.
Lastly: the festival concludes on Labor Day Weekend with the Chicago Women's Half Marathon and 5K run. Details for all that (and plenty more) can be found on the event's homepage, right here.
