Video: Weekend Warning for a weekend that FINALLY feels like summer!

It finally feels like summertime in Chicago, and just in time, too. There are many events on the calendar this weekend, including the 50th Annual Chicago Pride Parade, expected to draw one million spectators. Whether you’re planning to attend that or any of the many other events in the area, as Lauren Lapka reminds us, the Traffix Chicago app can help you avoid delays as you drive.
