Millennium Park is a hot destination in the summer, and the family fun fest makes it extra special. As part of the annual Great Performers of Illinois Festival, there are activities, entertainment and performance art throughout the park.

Among the attractions is a corn maze, something you don't see every day in downtown Chicago.

It's made up of more than 1,000 stalks of corn that are around six feet tall.

Corn is a staple to the economy of Illinois, which is what the maze is meant to represent.
