After enjoying Chicago’s architectural views from this aquatic vantage, return to land for a picnic dinner of tacos, chips, and salsa catered by Taquero Fusion Food Truck. Weather permitting, nightfall brings a fireworks show from nearby Navy Pier. Attendees are advise to wear a swimsuit, and bring a towel and change of clothes.
