芝加哥水上航空展(Chicago Air and Water Show)举办惊险刺激的水上和空中表演进行庆祝。芝加哥水上航空展始于1959年,当时只是家庭日庆祝活动(Family Day Celebration)的一个项目,现已发展成为美国规模最大的免费展演活动。


每年夏天,220多万人赶来参观民用及军用飞机、船只和跳伞队以芝加哥著名的地平线为背景展示惊心动魄的技艺。今年的演出活动预定8月17日至18日举行。

观众们一般散布在沿芝加哥湖畔的北大街沙滩(North Avenue Beach)上,还有人为避开拥挤的人群而从屋顶或游船上观看表演。另外,在这座摩天大楼组成的城市中,您总是可以从约翰·汉考克大厦(John Hancock Building)的观景台上俯瞰表演现场。

The Chicago Air and Water Show celebrates daredevil demonstrations, both in the air and on the water. From its start as part of the 1959 Family Day Celebration, the Chicago Air and Water Show has grown to become the largest free exhibition of its kind in the United States.


Each summer, more than 2.2 million people gather to experience thrilling exhibitions by civilian and military aircraft, boats and parachute teams against the backdrop of Chicago’s famous skyline. This year’s show takes place August 17–18.


Spectators typically spread out on North Avenue Beach along Chicago’s lakefront, while others, hoping to avoid the crowd, watch the show from a roof deck or cruise boat. And in this city of skyscrapers, there’s always the John Hancock Building’s observatory for a bird’s-eye view of the action.
