Beginning June 23rd, Friday evenings in Des Plaines will feature a special line-up of performances at Metropolitan Square. This 10-week summer series, called “Friday Nights Live!” is sure to attract residents who enjoy family-friendly entertainment! With a portion of the square closed to thru traffic, the venue will accommodate tables, umbrellas, chairs, and a performance stage.

Grab a bite to eat at the Tap House Grill, Pot Belly’s, Giordano’s, Forever Yogurt and Panera Bread, or bring your own picnic to enjoy at the event. The entertainment goes from 6:00 P.M. to 9:30 P.M., weather permitting. This year's entertainment line-up is different each week: potentially including live jazz, blues, dueling pianos, cooking demonstrations, comedians, improvisational comedy sketches, theatrical performances, storytelling, craft projects for kids, and pop-up art exhibits.
