CHICAGO (AP) — Civic leaders and cultural promoters are declaring 2014 the Year of the Chicago Cultural Mile.
The announcement today is designed to help highlight the stretch of Michigan Avenue from the Chicago River south to Roosevelt Road.
Simultaneously, a new initiative is also being launched to try and attract even more people to the already-popular downtown area. It’ll offer sharply discounted or free entertainment on the second Friday of every month.
New bronze signs and new Chicago Cultural Mile flags were unveiled today.
