CHICAGO — Chicago this past weekend celebrated 30 years of America’s favorite slacker and his iconic day off.
Stars and fans alike were on hand for “Ferris Fest,” a celebration of the 30th anniversary of “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.”
If Ferris Bueller taught us anything, it was how to do a day off right.
“I just like it because he’s so mischievous and he could do what I never did in school because I’m such a nerd,” Lisa Hale said.
A series of Ferris-themed events was topped off with a recreation of the film’s iconic parade scene.
Stars from the film were in attendance to share fans’ love of the famous school-skipper. A fun fact: The actors that played Ferris’ parents in the film got married in real life after meeting on set.
The iconic film was released on June 11th, 1986.
