Around the Hood: Edgewater Full Moon Fire Jam (Videos)
Word on the street is the next Full Moon Fire Jam will be held in the neighborhood on August 31st. If you are wondering what the heck this event is, we included a few videos below.
“The Full Moon Jams’ unite performing artists and spectators through a love and appreciation of fire art. Encompassing myriad performance styles and tools, fire dancers from the greater Chicago area and Great Lakes share their creative gifts by the shore of Lake Michigan, set to the percussive beats of local musicians, in this unique and free to the public monthly event taking place through Spring and into Fall.
The jams are a volunteer-run, not-for-profit, free-to-attend, family-friendly gatherings that adhere to the “Ten Principles of Burning Man“: radical inclusion, gifting, decommodification, radical self-reliance, radical self-expression, communal effort, civic responsibility, “Leave no trace,” participation and immediacy. Spectators and performers are encouraged to respect the park space by picking up trash before leaving, even if it isn’t theirs” – Chicago Full Moon Jam
Directions: ¼ mile south of the Foster Ave Turf Fields on the lakefront. Lakefront jams are just south of Foster Street Beach, on the east side of the lakefront trail, in the big field. Approximate address: 5100N & Lake Shore Drive 60640.
See you there!
