"Parks and Rec" stars are here in Chicago! From Chris Pratt to Aziz Ansari (and hopefully, eventually Amy Poehler), the show's fans are spotting the stars as they gear up to film scenes throughout the city this week.
Part of an episode from the seventh and final season of the NBC comedy series will be filmed here in Chicago, according to the Illinois Film Office. Several cast members made the most out of their visit with a few scheduled appearances, with Chris Pratt throwing out the first pitch at Wednesday's Cubs game against the Milwaukee Brewers and Aziz Ansari performing a pop-up show at the Vic.
The star of the series, Amy Poehler, is not in town just yet. As of Wednesday night, the Chicago-trained comic was in Los Angeles, recording a chapter of her new book "Yes Please" (to be released Oct. 28) in front of a live audience at the UCB Theatre.
For fans hoping to catch a glimpse of your favorite cast members, the exact filming locations are being kept under wraps. BUT, the Sun-Times suggested filming could be taking place in Hyde Park and Wrigleyville on Thursday while a tweet from "Filming in Chicago" claims the Museum campus is also a possibility.
One other possible #parksandrec Chicago filming location for tomorrow is 1400 S Lake Shore Museum Campus near Field Museum— Filming in Chicago (@filming_chicago) September 3, 2014
Keep your eyes peeled, everybody! But for now, enjoy this picture of Chris Pratt being adorable at the Cubs game from the Chicago Cubs Twitter account.
