Chicago By Boat

by Vince

Complete with fireworks. By Philip Boom:

To be more precise, that boat ride began in Burnham Harbor on Lake Michigan, went through the locks at the mouth of the Chicago River, went west on the Main Branch of the River, then south on the South Branch (artificially straightened in the ‘20s, but still the River proper) to about 12th Street, then turned around and went back the way it came. The fireworks were the 3rd of July show on Navy Pier. (Why Chicago has fireworks on the 3rd of July is a long story…)
