Air & Water Show
The annual Air & Water show returns to Chicago on August 21st + 22nd. This two-date event is back in full-force as it was canceled in 2020 due to the COVID pandemic then scaled down last year to a one-day hour long event. This year’s event returns with both civil and military pilots performing aerobatics, free fall demonstrations, and marine and airborne rescue exercises side by side. Be sure to get there early to get the best view!
