Invitation to the PIER 31 Beach Party

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Chicago will celebrate is newest beachfront hot spot on the near south side of the city.  The Culture Coast keeps getting better and the commitment toward the lake front is stronger than ever.

You are invited to join the Grand Opening celebration of PIER 31 (31st Street Beach).  This special event will be fun for the entire family including food, beverages and live music!  Join the beach party from 11 am - 10 pm this Saturday and Sunday, July 13-14, 2013. 

The opening of PIER 31 will be a great way to enjoy beachfront relaxation south of downtown. This beach offers visitors incredible views of the Chicago skyline from the south. Beach goers can find concessions and restrooms at the beach house.

A new harbor with 1,000 floating slips for 35-70-foot-long boats sits adjacent to the beach. The harbor also has space for boats up to 200 feet. In the nearby park, patrons can find an ADA-accessible playground, along with a “green roof” picnic area above an indoor parking garage that also functions as a winter boat storage area. A public fishing dock, community room, harbor store and offices are all available at this location.

The address is 3101 S. Lake Shore Drive.  Drive or bike to the lake and join us this Saturday and Sunday.
