    Fest planner: Sept. 5-7
    September?! September. This new month either fills you with dread ("Where did summer go?") or with elation ("Finally! I'm not sweaty!"). Whichever camp you're in, this weekend's fests are a great excuse to enjoy the final weekends of summer, or to get out to a fest without worrying that you'll melt on the asphalt. Popular late season fests are back, including Shock Top Oyster Fest, Renegade Craft Fair and the Hideout Block Party/Onion & A.V. Fest. You also have your choice of tasty fests including The Great American Bacon Festival, Windy City Wine Festival, Chicago Turkish Festival and more. With Labor Day in the rearview mirror, there's no time like the present to get out there. kbernot@tribune.com @redeyeeatdrink
