Festival Friday with Roz Varon

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Time now for Festival Friday and we begin with a special event at the Chicago History Museum.

An exhibit featuring the photos of Vivian Maier opens Saturday. Maier took everyday moments from the streets of Chicago and its suburbs and transformed them into something extraordinary. She died before her life's work was shared with the world. "Vivian Maier: In Color" features 65 images made during her time as a suburban Chicago nanny, most of which have never been on display.

There's a new exhibit at the Chinese American Museum of Chicago as well. "The Era of Opulence: Chinese Fine Dining" explores the Chinese diaspora through the success of Chinese cuisine in America. It runs through September 26.

The Cine-Youth Festival includes more than 100 international films from 25 countries. They are being shown virtually now through May 13. The filmmakers are aged 22 and younger. All events and screenings are free and open to the public, with tickets available online.

And The latest drive-through experience takes you back to prehistoric times! The parking lot at Fox Valley Mall has been transformed into Dino Safari - letting you get up close and personal with over 40 life-sized, giant moving dinosaurs! The in-car audio guide is available in English and Spanish.
