Owner of Lafayette Limo has gone on to Heaven

 

November 27, 2017

Summertime is the best time to go out and blow off some steam with family and friends on the weekend. It’s a time to relax and have some fun! You might just be barhopping with friends or maybe you’re traveling around town for a friend’s birthday, but one question always comes into mind and can kill the exciting spirit you had going for the evening and that question is...who's driving?

Come Sail Away!

 

Set Sail from Chicago

On August 10th we will return to Chicago. But this time, instead of hitting the ballpark we’ll be heading to Navy Pier for an exciting event known as Tall Ships® Chicago 2013! So help us drop anchor and let’s sail away for this great tour.

What is Tall Ships® Chicago?

According to the event website, tall ships are “large traditionally rigged sailing vessels. A tall ship can be a schooner, ketch, sloop, barque, brigantine, barquentine, or a full-rigged ship depending on the number of masts and the cut of the sails. Traditional rigged may include square rigs and gaff rigs with separate topmasts and topsails.” They look a little like old pirate ships- who wouldn’t want to see something this cool and historic?

Never heard of this event? Well that’s probably because it only comes around once every 4 years! This 5 day event is full of activity. Explore the festival booths along the pier, climb aboard the ships for a tour, or set sail and experience first-hand what it’s like onboard. Don’t miss out on the opportunity and get tickets now. It’s a great chance to mix history and education with excitement and a day of sunshine on the pier.

Chicago Match Cup

An added feature to this year’s event is the introduction of the Chicago Match Cup! 12 professional teams will participate in this sailing competition that lasts all week long. A form of match race sailing, this is the only race on the Alpari World Match Racing Tour that takes place in the U.S. Teams will be racing just off Navy Pier and will compete for a trophy and $100,000! Grab a front row seat because you definitely won’t want to miss any of the excitement.

Ticket Information

The cost is $40.00 per person or $35.00 per person for two or more. Payment due by 7/30/2013. We will leave the Lafayette Limo office at 8:00am with pick-ups at Marsh West: 8:15am, Meijer: 8:35am arriving in Chicago at 10:30am CST or so. We will board the bus to head home at 5:00pm arriving back in Lafayette around 8:00pm.
