Navy Pier Fireworks are Right Around the Corner

Navy Pier is one of Chicago’s greatest attractions for families, couples, and just about everyone. One of the biggest events of the year in the Chicagoland area is celebrating the Fourth of July with fireworks over Lake Michigan. One of the best vantage points for this yearly display is Navy Pier. Did you know that The Fourth of July isn’t the only time that there are fireworks displays at Navy Pier? That’s right, starting May 25th; you can catch fireworks twice a week all summer!

Navy Pier, located on Lake Michigan at Grand Avenue, also boasts an IMAX theater, many restaurants and bars, a constant schedule of entertainment and special events, a children’s museum, neighborhood walking, bicycle and Segway historical/cultural tours, lake and river architectural tours, rides and one of the largest Ferris wheels with a fantastic view of the city and much, much more. With all that to offer, it’s no wonder thousands of Chicagoans take advantage of Navy Pier every month all year round.

Fireworks over the lake are a sure sign that summer has arrived in Chicago, and this year Chicagoans don’t have to wait for Independence Day to enjoy these dazzling light shows. Spectacular fireworks that can be seen for miles around synchronized to music on the lake take place all summer long at the pier. The Navy Pier fireworks start Saturday, May 25 on Memorial Day weekend, and continue throughout Labor Day every Wednesday night at 9:30 p.m., and Saturdays beginning at 10:15 p.m., as well as holidays such as the Fourth of July; Independence Day.
