The Chicago Air and Water Show is set to take center stage along the shores and skies of Lake Michigan next weekend, and the stars of the show will make their return after a five-year absence.
According to the city, the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds will be the co-headliners of the Air and Water Show, making their first appearance in Chicago since 2018.
They will be joined by the U.S. Army Parachute Team Golden Knights for the show, which gets underway on Saturday.
The Air and Water Show is scheduled to take place Saturday, Aug. 19 and Sunday, Aug. 20, with rehearsals scheduled for Friday.
The show will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days, and admission is free.
While the focal point of the Air and Water Show will be North Avenue Beach, residents and visitors will be able to catch the aerial action down a stretch of Lake Michigan spanning from Fullerton to Oak Street.
In addition to the Thunderbirds and Golden Knights, the Air Force’s F-16 Viper Demo Team will attend, as will the Air Force’s C-17 Globemaster III and Air National Guard A-10 Thunderbolt II teams.
