Things to Do in Chicago This Weekend: Black History Month, Disney On Ice

Start the weekend off right with National Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day! There is a wide array of fun happening around town - pick from special sea lion events and activities at Shedd Aquarium during Family First Saturday, a step back in time at the Chicago Children's Museum Castle Exhibit and an extra sweet Daddy Daughter Candy Land Ball.

Celebrate Black History Month at Douglas Park's beautiful art exhibit showcasing local talent or the Chicago History Museum's exhibit on Dr. Martin King Luther, Jr. and his influence on the city. And for kid-friendly entertainment, check out Disney On Ice: Road Trip Adventures and the Enchanted Tales Film Series where you can catch your favorite classics - this weekend is "The Lion King."
