With July 4th this week we couldn’t help thinking of the remarkable Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, Illinois. The oldest outdoor music festival in the United States, artists slated to perform this month include The Chicago Symphony, Santana, The Emerson String Quartet, Midori, and Seal. The schedule of events run through September so hop on a train, plane or in the car and get there. Listen to wonderful music, enjoy a fabulous picnic (what better thing than 4th of July at The Ravinia?) and relax. Take a stroll through the festival’s Flickr stream and you’ll get in the mood immediately. Here are some of our favorite shots from last week’s events:
While cinda b has no affiliation with the Ravinia Festival – Cinda Boomershine was certainly inspired by it. Ravinia Ivory is one of our most popular colorways – with it’s brightly intertwined colors and harmonic pattern, we think it evokes the sophistication, fun, and warmth of the Ravinia Festival itself.
Want a little bit of Ravinia Ivory to carry around with you on your daily journey? We’re giving away a cute set of Pencil & Brush Bag and a Sunglasses Case in the Ravinia Ivory colorway (a $40 value). Just comment below and we’ll pick a winner on Friday July 6th (so be sure to check back).
