Now Boarding!

The Magnificent Mile Association, in partnership with Chicago’s First Lady Cruises, invites you to the 2021 “Golden Hour” Summer Cruise aboard the Emerald Lady on Tuesday, August 24 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. Boarding begins at 5:30 p.m. 
Endless skyline views await on the water as we catch the “golden hour,” the magical, picturesque hour before the sun sets behind the City’s iconic architecture. The evening will feature a specialty Chicago Sunset cocktail, tasty bites, and a photo contest. A prize will be given for the most creative picture taken during the golden hour.

Come Dressed for the Theme
Stay golden! Please come dressed for the cruise in attire befitting a sunset: your best gold and/or warm shades (pinks, oranges, yellows, reds). 

Golden Hour Photo Contest
Who will capture the golden photo? While aboard the Summer Cruise, have your cameras and phones ready for our Golden Hour photo contest. Snap a creative picture that captures the sunset beauty that will be casted on Chicago’s world class skyline and post it on Instagram using tags: @TheMagMile, @cflcruises, and #OnTheMile. At the end of the night, the most captivating and creative picture will be awarded a prize.
