Join us for the spectacular kickoff in support of Chicago’s Christmas Ship, a charity that helps to bring smiles to children of disadvantaged families at Christmas.  Enjoy the colorful nighttime sights along the Chicago River capped off by viewing the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival fireworks on board a custom designed cruise vessel.  Boarding will be from the river walk between Columbus Drive and Michigan Ave. Bridge beginning at 5:00 pm.  Last years details were: The ship gets underway at 5:45 pm.  Come early to enjoy Michigan Ave. and assure parking and timely access to the dock area.  A cash bar as well as hot chocolate, coffee and soft drinks will be available on board in the comfortable, heated salon.    NOTE: Dock access from the street will be limited at 5:00 pm.  For parking instructions, visit the site listed below and search for “parking”.  This year’s details will follow.
