The festival was supposed to take place from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Clark Street in Andersonville this weekend.

One person was hospitalized in the fire that destroyed two auto shops across the street and caused water damage to an Orange Theory Fitness studio.

Waldos Forever Fest was cancelled in 2020 and last year due to the pandemic.

It's a celebration of marijuana since its legal in Illinois.

Dispensary 33's West Loop location will be open 10am-10pm.
