Chicago Air & Water Show this weekend

An annual Chicago event

The fifty-first annual Chicago Air & Water show will be happening this weekend at North Ave. Beach, 1600 Lake Shore Dr. Events will take place Saturday and Sunday at 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free.

Heard but not seen

As I write this piece, I can hear planes flying overhead practicing for this weekend. I hear the sound of the planes, but I'm always too late to actually see them coming (or going)! That's why it's great to watch them fly above the city skyline and across the Lake Michigan horizon.

Thunderbirds to perform

Featured performers this year include the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, U.S. Army Parachute Team Golden Knights, The Firebirds, and U.S. Navy Leap Frogs Parachute Team. Click here for the complete program. For information on other events in Chicago, visit the Explore Chicago web site.
