Chicago welcomes 2016

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Fireworks at Navy Pier start next weekend and there will be something extra to look forward to this year.

Organizers will be syncing-up the fireworks to the music of the Rolling Stones for at least part of the season.

It's a nod to the new "Exhibitionism" show at Navy Pier which features the band's famous costumes and other memorabilia.

The fireworks start next Saturday, May 27, at 10:15 p.m.

Fireworks will be set off every Wednesday and Saturday night through Labor Day.

The Rolling Stones' "Exhibitionism" event runs through July 30 and includes more than 500 images, iconic treasures and artifacts, including Keith Richards' diary, artwork by Andy Warhol, instruments, stage costumes and more.
