Chicago's Chinatown community celebrated the debut of a new landmark when dancers and musicians performed at the big reveal of the new boat house at Ping Tom Park.

One part of it will be used for kayak and canoe storage, the other will house restrooms and a vending space.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel was there for the ribbon cutting.

The unveiling coincides with the Shall We Gather at the River festival at the park.
