Chicago Events

Chicago Events aboard a private yachtSummer Fireworks Schedule

Summer Nights from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

 Chicago's Navy Pier hosts spectacular firework show every Wednesday and Saturday nights from Memorial Day until Labor Day.   Enjoy the fireworks and celebration without the crowds and hassle aboard the Sophisticated Lady Yacht.  The captain positions the yacht so you have a front row view of the fireworks.  You can "feel the boom".  It is a fabulous end to a wonderful evening.

Your charter will include fine dining, drinks and a front row seat for Navy Pier's spectacular firework shows.

Chicago Air & Water Show 

 The Chicago Air and Water show is the largest free show of it's kind in the United States.  It will include exhibitions by the U.S. Navy Blue Angels and the U.S. Army Parachute Team known as the Golden Knights.   The 2016 shows take place on Saturday August 20th and Sunday August 21st.  This is one of the premier events of the summer and the dates fill up quickly. 

Thursday the 18th and Friday the 19th are both afternoons when the squads normally practice for the weekend event.  Many years the practice runs have been just as entertaining as the show due to the fact that the squads will repeat tricks over and over to perfect the timing.  Both of these days make for excellent charter events combining the joy of a cruise with the excitement of the Air and Water Show.

Concerts By Boat

First Merit Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island holds a series of lakefront concerts at the Northerly Island Pavilion which are enjoyed by boaters who gather to listen to concerts. 

Enjoy the sounds of these great performers onboard the Sophisticated Lady Chicago boat rental.
