Tomorrow is the official opening of Chicago’s Riverwalk summer activites, many free events are open to public from 9 a.m to 9 p.m.

The new Riverwalk is a 1.25-mile promenade through the whole city from Lake Shore Drive to Lake Street along the south bank of the Chicago river. It is a good place for tourists to enjoy the architecture, and vendors along the Riverwalk are expecting to have better summer sales.
