Betty Who, Kristine W., and MAX slated to perform Sunday at Market Days

Chicago, IL - Northalsted Market Days, the Midwest's largest outdoor street fest, kicked off Saturday in Chicago's Boystown neighborhood. The two-day festival continues Sunday from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m.

The festival opened Saturday to picture perfect weather, which is expected to continue again Sunday. The National Weather Service is calling for sunny to partly sunny skies and comfortable high temperatures in the mid 70s and lower 80s.

Organizers expect nearly 200,000 people from around the world will visit the festival before it closes Sunday night.

Multi-faceted entertainer Todrick Hall delivered a powerful performance, part of his Forbidden tour, to a full crowd on Saturday afternoon.
