A New World Record at Navy Pier!

May 20, 2013

We had an incredible weekend celebrating Armed Forces Day and the brand new World Record set by our very own Pier Park Operations Manager (and Superman), Clinton Shepherd! Congrats to Clinton on making it all 48 hours 8 minutes and 25 seconds on the Ferris wheel; you’ve made us at Navy Pier, and the entire city of Chicago, very proud!

Here are some highlights from the weekend!

We even captured the moment when Clinton broke the World Record on camera, the spectacular fireworks show that followed, and of course the amazing presentation of his official GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS certificate! Talk about history being made at the Pier!
