Grab your bib and put your claws together for the Great American Lobster Festival! Fresh, live lobsters are coming straight from the cold waters of the east coast and straight to Navy Pier in an all-ages, all-day event that'll put the rest of your summer to shame! This is not your typical lobster boil - not only will there be shellfish galore, you and other crustacean connoisseurs will rock out with your claws out to live music by The Giving Tree, Cherry Poppin' Daddies, Piano Man, School of Rock Chicago, and more. While you rest your belly, you and the whole family can check out craft vendors, games, and activities. On Saturday, attendees get to see the last Navy Pier fireworks show of the season right on the water! Not much of a sucker for shellfish? There'll be plenty of non-seafood bites to keep you saying "yum" all day long. From land, sea, and air, the Great American Lobster Festival is the perfect way to end your summer!
