The Chicago Loop Alliance announced on Wednesday that this year's Sundays on State event series across both of its summer event dates attracted more than 270,000 attendees. The series' final event on Aug. 13 saw "record breaking" attendance, attracting more than 146,000 people throughout the event along State Street between Lake and Adams streets, according to a Chicago Loop Alliance news release. "Hundreds of activations filled State Street, featuring 88 percent underrepresented business owners, generating millions in economic impact," according to the news release. “There is something intrinsically heartwarming about the impact of Sundays on State — the unique atmosphere, communal spirit, and fervent enthusiasm captivates everyone who attends,” Michael Edwards, president and CEO of Chicago Loop Alliance, said in the news release.
