Tour de Fat Rolls Into Palmer Square July 12

is a one afternoon festival that celebrates beers and bikes. Hosted by New Belgium, it invites cyclists to get costumed up, drink beer, and have a great time. The tour hits multiple cities and will return to Chicago's Palmer Square on Saturday, July 12. Grab your favorite tutu and head over to Logan Square between 11am and 5:05pm. You'll dance, you'll drink, you'll play giant board games, and you'll smile all day long.
