On Saturday, the Chicago Riverwalk celebrated the kickoff of its latest season with an entire day of boat tours, live music and parades. The evening ended with a one-minute fireworks display that sent sparks flying from the Clark and LaSalle Street bridges. Called "Pyrotechnic Waterfall," the show lived up to its name, creating two cascades of sparks (worthy of an ’80s hair metal music video) that descended into the Chicago River accompanied by some old fashioned aerial fireworks. It only lasted for about 60 seconds, so if you weren't anywhere near the explosive display, check out some videos of the impressive riverfront spectacle.
