Chicago Navy Week

August 12, 2012 7:08:45 AM PDT
On Saturday, August 18, and Sunday, August 19, 2012, it's time again for the popular annual Air and Water Show in Chicago.

ABC7 is a media sponsor, and it's certainly a great event that attracts millions of people. This year's headliners include the U.S. Navy's Blue Angels, who will perform jaw-dropping stunts.

But you don't have to wait until the show to meet a sailor. Navy Week starts on Monday, August 13! It commemorates the Bicentennial of the War of 1812. Lt. Cmdr. Michael Kerley, Navy City Outreach Officer here in Chicago, visited our ABC7 studio to tell us what you can experience during Navy Week.

Chicago is the second of six Navy Weeks in the Great Lakes.
