The 28th annual Chicago Blues Festival ended Sunday evening.

The three-day free music fest went out on a high note with Lonnie Brooks jamming at the Petrillo Music Shell.

Before he started his set, there was a special honor for the bluesman. Sunday was proclaimed "Lonnie Brooks Day" to recognize his contributions and accomplishments.

As many as half a million people enjoyed the festival this weekend.
