This weekend marks the 54th Anniversary of the Chicago Air and Water Show. For three full days we will be entertained by the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, U.S. Army Parachute Team Golden Knights & Leap Frogs, the Lima Lima Flight Team and the Red Bull Air Force, just to name a few. Our high flying guests will be screaming through the sky over Chicago’s lakeshore, entertaining crowds with dangerous maneuvers and aerial acrobatics.
The whole city is buzzing with excitement, and early risers will head to the beach at dawn to reserve their front row seat. The sound of jets overhead, cheering crowds from every beach, inch of the lakeshore path and rooftop will ripple through the city this weekend leaving all of us with the perfect summer memory.
Antonio Perez of the Chicago Tribune shares a few highlights from preview day, by the looks of things the 2012 Air and Water show may be the best one yet!
Before we head out to secure our seats to the show, we’d like to highlight attorneys who have been able to combine their passion for the law, with their passion for flight!
