Woa, what a cool idea. The Great Chicago Fire Festival of 2014. Here is the recreation of the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 on the Chicago River right? Or not? I mean, what was this festival all about? It was based on the fire but then things got horribly twisted with the narration. Things got really confusing. There was a guy with a gong jumping around on a boat in the water, a sentimental boys choir seeing eerily, and then this horrendous Tim Burton like music loop that went on for about a half hour. Then…. nothing. No fire. Nothing.
There was some fireworks but I already took off by that point. People were confused and many people left, myself included, and that was that.
There will be another festival next year…. But I seriously am up in the air if I am going to stand out there again for two hours.
