LINCOLN SQUARE — Pace yourselves folks, there's another weekend jam packed with activities ahead.
Head to Ravenswood Manor Park, 4604 N. Manor Ave., on Friday night and plant yourself there through Sunday for a three-day entertainment-palooza.
Balladeer Jeffrey Foucalt kicks things off at 7 p.m. Friday, bringing his brand of Americana, country and blues to the park's outdoor concert venue.
At 5 p.m. Saturday, Spectralia Theatre hits the stage with the first of two free performances of Shakespeare's "The Comedy of Errors." This family-friendly production clocks in at 90 minutes and will repeat at 5 p.m. on Sunday.
Providing an opening act for the Bard, students from Ravenswood Manor's Narloch Piano Studio, 4636 N. Francisco Ave., will be tickling the ivories in the park during a free recital at 3 p.m. on Sunday.
At nearby Buffalo Manor Park, 4501 N. California Ave., the Ravenswood Manor Improvement Association's annual children's bike parade gets underway at 10:30 a.m. Sunday (lineup begins at 10 a.m.). Participants are encouraged to festoon their vehicles — wagons, scooters and bikes — with as many decorations as they can handle. The parade route leads to Manor Park, where riders can recharge with hot dogs and treats from First Slice Pie Cafe.
If it's thrills you're looking for, the Neighborhood Boys and Girls Club 65th annual carnival continues its run June 28-30, with live music, 18 carnival rides, games and food. Hours are 6-11 p.m. on Friday, 2-11 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. A tip for bargain hunters: $20 will get you unlimited rides 2-6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
The Villa, a Chicago historic district nestled within Irving Park, is holding its first guided walking tour of 2013 at 2 p.m. June 29. The two-hour tour starts at the northwest corner of Pulaski Road and Avondale Avenue and will meander past the neighborhood's gardens, boulevards and Arts and Craft houses. Cost is $10.
A walk of a different kind steps off from Soldier Field at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday. There's still time to join the Lincoln Square Friendship Center's Hunger Walk team or donate to the cause. Money raised supports the Greater Chicago Food Depository and its 650 affiliated agencies, including the Friendship Center. If interested, email email@example.com.
Finally, the Chicago Public Library has teamed up with StoryCorps, an independent nonprofit organization, to record Chicagoans' migration stories. People are asked to participate in pairs — one to serve as interviewer, the other as interviewee — during the hourlong session. The StoryCorps booth will be open noon-3 p.m. June 29 at Sulzer Library, 4455 N. Lincoln Ave. Sign up to reserve a slot by calling 312-747-8191 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
