ARMOUR SQUARE — Heading to the South Side on Saturday to see Chance The Rapper at the Magnificent Coloring Day Festival?

Before you make the journey to U.S. Cellular Field, here's everything you need to know.


Tickets sold out fast for this one, but that doesn't mean you're out of luck. You can still snag a pair on StubHub. They'll cost you anywhere from $65 to $2,499.


The Chicago Transit Authority will provide additional Red Line trains to the Sox-35th Street stop — one block east of the ballpark — from 1 p.m.-12:30 a.m.


It will cost $30 to park at the Cell, according to 11th Ward Ald. Patrick D. Thompson. But if you decide against paying to park, be careful. The alderman recently changed neighborhood parking laws to require drivers to display a residential parking sticker on their parked cars during all events at the ballpark. If you park in the residential areas around the Cell without a sticker, you'll get a ticket.


Make sure you've got a handle on concert and ballpark rules. They're the same ones that apply at White Sox Games.

• Guests are welcome to bring food in a small, transparent plastic bag.

• If you bring a bag, it can be no larger than 16-by-16-by-8 inches. Security guards will search the bag before letting you into the festival.

• Every guest can bring one sealed plastic bottle of water that's 1 liter or less in size. No other beverages are allowed.

• Bottles, cans, hard-sided coolers or other liquid containers are not allowed in the ballpark.

• Smoking is allowed in designated areas only.


There are plenty of places to grab a bite to eat before or after the festival. Check out what some neighborhood experts have to say about grub options around the Cell here.


And there's no shortage of spots to grab a beer or cocktail. Check out this list of neighborhood watering holes.
