A lot of people thought Navy Pier would be a good spot to watch last night’s Fourth of July fireworks.
Maybe too many people!
ALERT: We have reached maximum capacity at Navy Pier and all public entrances to the Pier are officially CLOSED.

They stopped letting people in around 8:30 so if you were one of the lucky ones…congrats!
From what I heard, there was a lot more cops patrolling the Lakefront to keep people in check too!
