NORTH CENTER — Neighbors will be able to enjoy live music, food and craft beer in the newly redesigned North Center Town Square this weekend. 

North Center Homecoming kicks off noon Saturday at 4100 N. Damen Ave. Organizers from the North Center Chamber of Commerce are asking for a $5 donation, and all proceeds will support the chamber’s initiatives and community programming. 

“We’re excited to welcome the community to explore the new space and meet with friends and neighbors in a safe outdoor setting,” said Eileen Keleghan, the chamber’s executive director.
