Celebrate Independence Week With These Chicago Party Cruises!

Summer’s already looking good in Chi-Town. Navy Pier is filled with attractions, like the centennial wheel, Pepsi wave swinger, and other rides. The pier has planned enough events for an excellent summertime in Chicago filled with fun, family-friendly activities. Every Wednesday and Saturday the AON Center puts on a fireworks show over the waters of Lake Michigan. For the 4th of July, the AON Center will blow even more colors into the sky than any night before, or after.

Introducing, Independence Week. Yup, that’s right, we weren’t satisfied with celebrating America’s birthday on just July 4th, our patriotism expands throughout the week with a plethora of Chicago party cruises.
