The Chicago Cubs want to stage weekend festivals around Wrigley Field during three popular series this summer, including one with the White Sox.

The idea is to close Sheffield from Addison to Waveland. The area would be blocked off for most of the day from Friday through Sunday on three weekends in June, July and August.

Family entertainment, food and drink would be offered.

The Cubs have not applied for a city permit yet. The Chicago Tribune reports there are concerns about congestion in an already crowded neighborhood.
