There's no better way to ring in the New Year like witnessing the incredible fireworks on the Riverwalk. The turn out for this event was much bigger this time. I went out last year in five degree weather with high winds and last night was a big difference. There was bit of rain that eventually tapered off before the big celebration.
I did walk towards Navy Pier at first, but finally settled for standing on Michigan Ave. It was a good choice since the boat with the fireworks was near me I quickly captured the scene as it started.
The camera I am using to film the event is the Sony A6300 and I have a Canon 24mm lens adapted. The scenes at the end with me walking were taken with the Yi Xiaomi action camera. Happy New Year all the good people of Chicago and everyone here at ChicagoNow. 2019 is going to be an amazing year.
