Chicago festival to feature ‘fire spectacle’

CHICAGO – The city’s newest festival will feature a “fire spectacle,” acrobatics, live music and a procession of floating, illuminated sculptures on the Chicago River.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced Friday the inaugural Great Chicago Fire Festival will be held in October 2014.

It will be presented by the city in partnership with Redmoon, a large-scale spectacle and public art group.

Emanuel says the festival will be a unique event “worthy of our world-class city.”

He also says the event will bring more people to the Chicago River, which he calls “one of the city’s greatest natural assets.” The mayor has made developing the riverfront one of his key goals.
