If you missed the first day of the Chicago Travel & Show Saturday in Rosemont, you still have a chance Sunday to enjoy all of the show attractions, including presentations by Rick Steves and other travel experts.
Steves, the familiar face of public television’s European travelogues and author of travel guides covering the continent, will speak about Europe in general at 11:30 a.m. and Italy in particular at 2:30 p.m. In between, author Patricia Schultz will talk about her popular book, “1,000 Places to See Before You Die,” and will sign autographs afterward.
There will be plenty of entertaining action on the Global Beats Stage Sunday, including Thai kickboxing demonstrations at 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., as well as dance performances that offer a peak at the culture of destinations including Mexico, the Philippines, India, and Scotland.
Show visitors will have the opportunity to get a free scuba diving lesson or a free lesson on how to ride a Segway. They also can get an up close look at Antarctic penguins and Alaskan sled dogs.
Travel experts from more than 200 destinations will be on hand in the booths at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center to help you plan your next getaway.
The show is open Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets are available online or at the door. For more information on the attractions and the show schedule, visit the Chicago Travel & Adventure Show website.
