4th of July Fireworks

Navy Pier will be hosting their annual fireworks show on Wednesday, July 4, 2018. Navy Pier is one the many major places to visit here in Chicago. The pier receives a great amount of attention towards their Ferris Wheel. The wheel can be seen from far away. On Independence Day, Navy Pier will be the focal point.

For many years now, Navy Pier has put on their annual Independence Day fireworks display presented by Miller Lite.  The show will start at 9:30 P.M. and will last for 15 minutes. Guests should arrive early to avoid crowds. Navy Pier will open to the public at 10:00 A.M. Gates will close whenever capacity is reached. In addition, Navy Pier does offer on-site parking. However, parking garages will reach capacity early. Therefore, Navy Pier suggest using their partner garages and public transportation.

The three partner parking garages are:

  • Grand Plaza Self Park located at 540 N. State Street,
  • Ogden Plaza Self Park located at 300 E. North Water Street,
  • and Millennium Lakeside Garage located at 5 S. Columbus Street.

Partner garages offer a $15 discount parking rate for guests. To receive discount rate for parking, you must receive validation from Navy Pier. You can obtain parking validation at the information booth.

There will be more security since the 4th of July Fireworks event is expected to be larger than last year’s. In addition to Navy Pier’s security, the Chicago Police Department, K9 officers, off-duty officers and private security will also be in attendance. Therefore, to ensure safety, there will be security checks points at every entrance.
