Thousands flock to Grant Park each year on on the 4th of July to view the wonderful fireworks display put on by Navy Pier. Fireworks against the backdrop of the lake is a uniquely Chicago experience. Seeing the fireworks reflect off the water adds another level of enjoyment and makes for some awesome photos. Whether it’s from a camp chair in Grant Park or a seat on the Terrance bar at Trump Tower, the fireworks are shared by everyone. It’s a great way to unify the city under one experience.
What many don’t know is that Navy Pier puts on fireworks shows regularly throughout the summer. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, you can see fireworks every Wednesday and Saturday nights just off Navy Pier. While shorter than the typical 4th of July presentation, they are still quite the spectacle.
Many Chicago boaters take advantage of the regular fireworks displays and watch them from a unique vantage point, the lake looking in. From there, you can see the fireworks explode in front of the wonderfully-lit Chicago skyline. It’s an unforgettable sight that most never experience. There are still plenty of fireworks days left. You can book your tour here. Have a Happy 4th of July!
