• Kids in the Square

  • Join the business community of Lincoln Square and Ravenswood during the second Saturday in May for “Kids in the Square.”  It's sure to be a day of laughter and enjoyment as the businesses of the neighborhood get turned over to the kids!   Throughout the day, local businesses have special kid-focused events in their stores and in Giddings Plaza.  Activities range story time, teddy bear picnics, face painting, family yoga, a magician, dance performances, button-making and so much more. It’s sure to be a great time for the whole family.  And the best part about the event, it’s FREE of charge!

    We're excited to have Miss Veronica Garza as the Emcee for this year's Kids in the Square.  Miss Veronica is a singer and actress from the Chicago area. She is a Lincoln Square resident and she loves to do kids' concerts at Pickles Playroom. Veronica has performed all over town. Some of her Chicago credits include: Millennium Park, Apollo Theatre, Mercury Theatre, Stage 773, Theatre Wit, Greenhouse Theatre, Uptown Underground, Uncommon Ground and many more!
