Slice of Life: Chicago’s Turkish Festival

Tiny chairs and huge pots of tea marked this year’s Turkish Festival at Daley Plaza.  It was much better than a lot of the local national festivals in that it had far better representation by a larger number of vendors than most.

Unfortunately, at each of these festivals there’s always some group that has to ruin it by bringing its own agenda or non-theme tent.  Like the way there’s always a Peruvian kiosk at the German Christmas festival.  The interloper at the Turkish Festival was the Korean Veterans association.
