CHICAGO - The Great Chicago Fire Festival is giving their spectacle another go.

According to The Great Chicago Fire Festival's website, the event celebrates Chicago residents, culture, and history.

Many spectators were disappointed when last year's main event fizzled out on the Chicago River.

Rainy weather prevented two displays from ever catching on fire.

The one wooden mansion that did start on fire had just a few flames rather than a blaze.

Organizers have been testing this year's displays. They feel confident that they will work this time around.

The main event takes place Saturday on Northerly Island.

Attendance will be cut off at 10,000 people.

You can register ahead of time by visiting The Great Chicago Fire Festival's website.
