Celebrating 54 years

2012 marks the 54th Air and Water Show. On the shores of Lake Michigan, boats and aircraft take part in entertaining the masses. This years high speed entertainment will take place August 18 and 19, 2012 at North Avenue Beach.

This years headliners include the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, U.S. Army Parachute Team: Golden Knights, and the U.S. Navy Parachute Team: Leap Frogs. The parachute teams typically jump out of the aircraft 12,500 feet above North Ave. Beach and can reach 120 mph during the free fall.

Military aircraft, U.S. Coast Guard and the Chicago Fire Department will provide entertainment throughout the day. The show will take place from 10 am to 3pm, both Saturday and Sunday. Be sure to hit the beach early because the sand fills up quickly with patrons!
