Chicago Air and Water Show: Where to watch, what you'll see
This is the 55th annual event. There will be fewer acts and no military flyovers this year because of federal budget cuts from sequestration. This means no Air Force Thunderbirds or Army Golden Knights. But the show will have more civilian acts, including some with military jets.

Parking: Millennium Garages with a free shuttle to and from North Avenue Beach; go to millenniumgarages.com
What is allowed: Picnic blankets, chairs and coolers. Must walk bicycles. Encouraged: Sunscreen, sunglasses, bottled water, earplugs and binoculars.
What is not allowed: Alcoholic beverages, grills, fireworks, tents or canopies, balloons, kites, flagpoles and pets (except service animals).
