On June 14, Shedd Aquarium host a special Pride Night after hours.
The evening included pop-up animal encounters, a live set from Slo 'Mo DJ Audio Jack, a specialty Pride pineapple margarita and much more.
A pride-themed presentation from Shedd's animal-care staff also took place, in the aquarium's Phelps Auditorium. After the chat, attendees could visit Shedd's newest special exhibit, "Underwater Beauty," and take in the exhibit's rainbow wall that features aquatic life from every color of the rainbow.
Among the local officials who stopped by were Gov. JB Pritzker, Cook County Commissioner Kevin Morrison and state Comptroller Susana Mendoza.
