Summer in Chicago. If you live here, you know every weekend from June to August, you can find a neighborhood full of people celebrating anything from pizza to Gospel music. It’s all about a chance to get outside, enjoy the beautiful weather and have fun with your neighbors.

Festival season is now in full swing, offering some great opportunities to show the world what Chicago summer is all about.┬áThere’s just one week left to take part in the #InstagramYourCity competition. The winner will receive a trip to a Social Media Week city of his or her choice during the September 24-28 event. Check out the Social Media Week blog for full contest details.

Here’s a comprehensive list of Chicago’s summer festivals, and the #InstagramYourCity Chicago gallery for some inspiration.

Happy snapping!
