    Background: In what was described in the official guides as "10 Days of Summer Magic" thousands of Chicagoans -- officials local terminology for residents of Chicago -- and visitors have been celebrating that city's annual Lakefront Festival.

    Chicago's Mayor, Richard Daley, is famous for his domination of the city's local affairs. He's been Mayor for sixteen years and just about everything in the city bears his stamp. The Lakefront festival is one of the highlights of Chicago's year -- it's by invitation of Mayor Daley.

    Visnews Cameraman, On Wing Lee, was among those on the invitation list.
