Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered.

Watch Humboldt Park transform into a circus-filled cruise ship in SOS: A Summer Clown Cruise, an acrobatic show produced jointly by Theater Oobleck and El Circo National de Puerto Rico. The show is part of Night Out in the Parks, a city-wide initiative to bring the arts to the parks.

Joined by Hurray for the Riff Raff, folk artist Joe Pug performs at Pritzker Pavilion as part of the summer Downtown Sound series. Although originally from Maryland, Pug's music career has deep Chicago roots. After dropping out of college, he began playing at a local bar's open-mike nights and soon released his first EP, Nation of Heat.

What's the story? Garfield Park Conservatory is hosting Morning Glories workshops every Monday from 10 AM to noon, giving parents and their little ones a hands-on opportunity to learn about the natural world. Today's workshop is called "Sold on a Marigold" and focuses on natural ways to protect tomato plants from bugs.
