Lowrider festival rolls slowly into Navy Pier
Backstory: Slow & Low began in 2018 as a four-block event in Pilsen.
- It is now a citywide celebration, spread over 170,000 square feet in the pier's Festival Hall.
What's happening: Billed as Chicago's "largest gathering celebrating Lowrider culture, community and art," it features hundreds of customized cars, bicycles, and motorcycles along with folkloric dance performances, music, food, interactive photo booths and a market.
What they're saying: "Lowriders are an expression of cultural identity — a reimagined American identity, activism, resistance and empowerment of the Mexican American community," festival co-founder Lauren Pacheco said in a press statement.
If you go: 10am to 8pm Saturday. Tickets start at $15.
