Chicago, IL (August 2021) – Look! Up in the sky! It’s the U.S. Navy Blue Angels! City Cruises Chicago invites guests to set sail throughout the Air & Water Show weekend, which will feature a special solo demonstration by the U.S. Navy Blue Angels this year, by offering six dining cruises during the preview/practice show on Friday, August 20 and the live shows on Saturday and Sunday, August 21 and 22. Located at the ports of Navy Pier, 600 E. Grand Avenue, City Cruises’ rooftop deck access allows patrons spectacular and unobstructed views of the reimagined show on Lake Michigan. With a delicious 3-course meal, DJ entertainment and rooftop games in addition to the outstanding views, City Cruises is the hot spot to watch the unbelievable Blue Angels perform.

“The city has long been anticipating the Air & Water Show due to last year’s cancellation, and we are particularly excited to host guests again as we near the end of summer,” said Dan Russell, Chief Operating Officer of City Cruises. “We cannot wait to set sail and enjoy this last bit of summer in the Chi as we watch the Blue Angels take flight!”
