LOGAN SQUARE — Welcome to a beautiful summer weekend.
As are most summer weekends in Chicago, this one is packed with events in Logan Square and Humboldt Park.
Here are our five picks:

Humboldt Park residents have spent more than a year pushing for the return of their inland beach in the middle of the park and are more than excited to celebrate the new beach's grand opening this weekend. The celebrations include music, movies and more throughout the weekend. The party starts from 5-7 p.m. Friday will run from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday.
Giant Pop-Up Pub
