Chicago, IL -
Northalsted Market Days, the Midwest's largest outdoor street fest, wrapped-up Sunday, Aug. 13 in Chicago's Boystown neighborhood. With near perfect weather, the two-day street festival drew large crowds from around the world.
On Saturday, Aug. 12, Chicago-area native Steve Grand delivered a powerful performance to a full crowd.
"I was taken aback by how many people were out there to see my show," he told ChicagoPride.com
. "It's nice to see, as an artist, being supported by your home city like that."
'Queen of Bounce' Big Freedia, 10,000 Maniacs, the cello and vocal duo Branden & James and Jody Watley were among the musical acts. Also in the mix were newcomers and Chicago mainstays – like 16 Candles and Catfight – all split between five entertainment stages.
