A trio of football players from the 1985 Super Bowl Chicago Bears will help kick off the Illinois State Fair next week.
Dan Hampton, Otis Wilson, and Steve McMichael are the grand marshals for the twilight parade Thursday (8/11) evening.
Fair manager Kevin Gordon says then they’ll play a free concert as part of the band “The Chicago 6.”
“After the concert, they will come down off stage and we also will have a free autograph signing with them. So we obviously encourage everyone to come out,” Gordon said.
