CHICAGO — The annual Bid Billiken Parade drew tens of thousands of fans, marchers, entertainers and a few politicians to the South Side Saturday, an event energized by soaring rap star Chance the Rapper as grand marshal.

Chance, a native South Sider, handed out backpacks and held a free evening concert at the Auditorium Theatre, 50 E. Congress Parkway, after the parade from Oakwood Boulevard and King Drive to Washington Park.

Here's a few of the sights and sounds from Saturday's fun:
