Fireworks are available each Wed and Sat from Memorial Day thru Labor Day on Navy pier ( which is just to right as boat goes into lock) Admiral and I just returned from there last Tuesday and were able to take a boat tour to see the fireworks from the water. Very cool. When in C town be sure to take advantage of this event. We also took the Architecture Boat Tour. Very good and highly recommend it. My problem was that at times I was more interested in the boat and maneuvering than the buildings. Admiral kept me in line.
