The sailors aboard are celebrating Navy Week and the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812. That war was fought in part on the Great Lakes and led to a treaty in which the U.S. and Canada agreed to demilitarize the Great Lakes.

Navy Week leads up to Chicago's annual Air and Water Show over the weekend, featuring performances by the U.S. Navy's Blue Angels flight team.
