I'm going there to meet some of the people I work with. First time I went there no one really did the Christmas light thing - it resembled a regular Saturday night by all respects. But this time the Tall Ships festival is in town, so there's going to be the added attraction.

they also have a better fireworks display than is on the 3ed of july. Usually I go with all my friends and take them to my dads boat get drunk throw anker about 5 miles out. Dad retired this year and took his boat to the east coast. I have never seen it from land but in the water it is a fun thing to see. More than just lights they turn their boats into almost like paraied flots. To avoid trafic take tour bikes,after fireworks go to the bars on rush st.

I went 2 years ago and took the L blue line. Easy ride, easy walk and no traffic to deal with.

i've been going every year for the last three years now. its a lot of fun, and no one says anything to you if you're sitting there drinking. like danny said, the fireworks are better than they are on the third of july, and the crowd is alot smaller. i just hope the weather stays clear.
