July 2, 2010
To say that this weekend is one of the busiest on Chicago's waterfront is a huge understatement. As many of us may know, The City of Chicago's Fireworks have been scheduled for July 4th at three different locations (see below). This is a departure and a bit of an adjustment for those that have grown accustomed to the July 3rd megafestival that occurs simultaneously with the Taste of Chicago brings thousands upon thousands of people down to experience one of our City's best assetts our lakefront.
It also positions the marine community in the middle of an increased amount of boat traffic and many of the issues that come along with that.
So as your Lake Michigan Sailboat Dealer for Beneteau- we'd like to remind everyone to be safe out on the lake this weekend. Mind your rules of the waterway and practice safe boating. Be mindful of others and don't take risky chances you might regret.
Most of all - have fun with your friends and family celebrating our great Nation's Birthday.
Happy and Safe Fourth of July!
