Chicago Graduation Party Highlights

Highlight #1: Fireworks Show

On top of being able to take in Chicago’s skyline, there are plenty of perks to docking in Dunham Harbor. From May 26th to the first of September, Navy Pier brings this gorgeous bay to life with weekly fireworks shows. Every Wednesday and Saturday, the harbor is illuminated by a stunning selection of pyrotechnics. This hefty dose of fireworks makes Memorial to Labor Day the ideal time to host a graduation party in Chicago.

Out of all the places to enjoy the show, none provide a more intimate view than a private yacht. Docked in the middle of the action, our yacht provides front row seats to the pyrotechnics display of a lifetime. We can sail around the harbor, which provides multiple vantage points. Seeing Chicago’s skyline light up with fireworks is absolutely breathtaking, so treat yourself to this impressive spectacle in 2019!
