I'm going to be in Chicago during the weekend of Aug 11th, 2018. Can you suggest any viewing parties that are not too far away?

I'm very very amateur. I don't really know too much about astronomy, but do like being around people that do.

Please post any events that you know of like this one that was one about an hour away at Indiana Dunes State Park. https://www.trippy.com/a/5b65a86ae4b0e99fd1765e1b/507c527fe4b0c31db879944f

thank you

The Astronomical League's list of astronomy clubs leads to these opportunities:

Like most meteor showers, the Perseids produce more meteors in the early morning, but there should be some in the late evening.
