Millennium Park overrun by giant insect show

July 16, 2010 (CHICAGO)

Crews started constructing the enormous ants, spiders and praying mantises Friday afternoon.

The eight giant bugs are 10 times larger than humans.

They were created by a street theater company from Spain for their larger-than-life show called "Insects."

The performances, Friday night through Sunday, will include light, music and movement.

You can see the bugs up close at the park's south promenade.
