One Final Summer Hurrah

Whether you decide to lay out on a yacht, dine on a restaurant rooftop or relax on the beach, the Chicago Air & Water Show will undoubtedly be your main attraction this weekend! Each year, over two million people flock to the lakefront on Michigan Avenue to see this phenomenal exhibition.  It is hard to believe that just 55 years ago, this show started with a budget of $88 and featured simple demonstrations.  Today, it's the world’s largest free air and water expedition.  For the past several years, it has showcased numerous favorite performers including the U.S. Army Parachute Team Golden Knights, U.S. Navy Blue Angels and U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds.  Although this year these military headliners have been cancelled due to budget cuts, a total of 15 headliners are performing, six of which are brand new his year. Despite the changes, it's sure to be a crowd-pleasing show just as in years past.

The show runs from 10:00am to 3:00 pm both Saturday and Sunday.
North Avenue is said to be the best viewing spot, but there are countless places throughout the city that are known for their clear views of the action.

Not sure where to watch or what to expect? This guide to the Air & Water Show is a definite must-read! 


PS - Due to the festivities and crowd's expected this weekend, there will be no #EXPOSURE2013 workout. We will re-continue on Saturday, August 24th with A Mind and Body Total Fitness and Gift from the Heart Foundation.
