This Spring Break, Navy Pier’s Family Pavilion is transformed into an old-time town square. On the music stage, the Chicken or the Egg Orchestra plays all day everyday, featuring fiddle, banjo, bass, guitar and drums. Mother Goose and her friends act out stories by the Wishing Well, and play recess games along with the audience. From Opening Day (Friday, March 30) through Easter Sunday, April 8, the Bunny visits the square dressed in her spring finest and poses for photos in her colorful flower garden. Music, games and fun for everyone – Swing into Spring at Navy Pier!
