Some protesters were out along the lakefront for the Air and Water Show on Saturday.

A coalition of Chicago-area peace groups assembled near the North Avenue pedestrian bridge to protest what they describe as rampant pro-war commercialism on display at air and water events.

Protesters carried signs and handed out leaflets depicting air shows as pep rallies for military recruitment.
