We’ve got good news for all of you music fans with families of your own! First off, admission to the festival is free for kids under 10. Better yet, the Chicago Children’s Museum will be holding a Vinyl Art Workshop for kids at the Festival from 1-5 PM Saturday and Sunday Afternoons. Using vintage LP’s  and various art materials, kids will work with professional artists to design their own album covers for a favorite band, real or imaginary.
