Air and Water Show (since 1959). Also new BattleBots toys.
The air and water show is a world class event, this year coincidentally occurring on the birth day (1871) of Orville Wright. Show peaks over North Avenue beach, but I often watch from Montrose pier. Friends tell me Navy Pier is also good. I'd like to see it from the Hancock some day. This year weather was bad both days, with heavy downpours on Saturday. Years seem to alternate between rainy, perfect, or hellish heat. Show included Blue Angels, Lima Lima, Navy SEALs, bi-planes, F15, F14, F18, F117, B1b, B2, C141, KC135, AH64, A10 aircraft. There's much better shots of the planes HERE
