finest will participate in The Chicago Air & Water Show, a Chicago summer tradition since 1959. Headlining the show are the famous Blue Angels and the Army and Navy Parachute Teams. Starting at 10am and going until 3pm each day, the Air & Water Show will also feature civilian aircraft performances and famed host and emcee Herb Hunter, who has been the voice of the show for more than 20 years.
