Venetian Night @ Navy Pier

A few of our friends decided to see the boat parade and fireworks at Navy Pier on Venetian Night. It was a perfect outing for the kids. We decided to go via Metra Rail, so that there is no hassle of driving, parking, traffic, etc. Just before the fireworks started, I could see the *beautiful* Chicago skyline; just as the sun had set. I truly believe that when it comes to skylines, Chicago might easily be the best...

As an FYI, if you are planning to take a picture at night or in the "night mode" preset of your camera; do me a favor and get a tripod! As you can see from the picture above, it doesn't come out as sharp as one would want it. I was lucky the picture isn't blurry, to be honest.

Just by the Pier were the horses courtesy Budweiser Brewery. The horses were majestic looking, although I don't have a good picture to do justice.

Anyways, we are right in front of their cage.
