The city of Chicago is turning 177-years-old and is having a Mardi Gras themed birthday party.

Everyone is invited to attend the party today at Daley Plaza.

From 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. there will be music and food trucks, so you can buy lunch or dinner.

It wouldn’t be a party without cake so Eli’s Cheesecake is giving away free slices of cheesecake while supplies last.

The event kicks off with a short program on the history of Chicago.
