    Organizers of Ferris Fest in Chicago planned three days of events May 20-22 to honor the 30th anniversary of the iconic film.

    If Ferris Bueller were to re-create his epic day off in 2016, how much would it cost?

    In honor of the 30th anniversary of the 1986 Chicago classic "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," Chicago Magazine calculated the cash needed to pull off Ferris, Cam and Sloane's iconic adventures, from parking downtown to repairing a severely damaged Ferrari.

    Three people would rack up $42 for four hours of parking, $66 for tickets to the Willis Tower Skydeck and $261 for field-level Cubs tickets, according to the magazine.

    The magazine calculated $80 for lunch at Cochon Volant Brasserie, "the fanciest French resto in the Loop serving lunch on weekdays"; $66 to get into the Art Institute of Chicago; and $3,000 for permits and security for the Von Steuben German Day Parade.

    As for Ferrari repairs? The mag estimated Cam's damage at $1 million, for an all-day total of $1,003,515.
