"This is the week that we celebrate the city that we love. The city of Chicago," center director Frank Davis explained. "One thing that we have are great sports teams like the Cubs, Sox, Bears, Bulls and Hawks. This is cool having the Blackhawks mascot, Tommy Hawk."

Later in the week, as part of the "Chicago Week" celebration, the center plans to serve children deep dish pizza and take them downtown to tour Chicago.

"I think he's nice and I like him. He's kind of funny," said Sydney Krcmarik, 7, of Antioch, who was covered in plastic aerosol string.
