Your best local fireworks displays

Since this blog was so popular last year, I figured I’d return to it over the holiday weekend to let you know where you can catch some of the best local fireworks displays in the Chicagoland area.  I hope you’ll all be able to get out to view some of these fantastic shows. 

Evanston: July 4th at 9:15 pm at Clark Street Beach (Clark Street and the lakefront).  Palatine Concert Band will be playing from 7:30 to 9:00 pm at Dawes Park.  View Evanston’s site for more info. I have to say, even though I do work in the Evanston area and am probably a little biased, that this show is absolutely fantastic year after year!

Glenview: July 4th starting at 7:30 pm at the Glenview Park Golf Club at 800 Shermer Road.  View the park district site here.

Skokie: Skokie is planning a Picnic in the Park concert beginning at 6:00 featuring music.  They’ll also have food and drinks. The fireworks show is at dusk on July 4th at Niles West High School, 5701 Oakton Street.  

Wilmette: Wilmette is also planning their fireworks display for tomorrow, July 3rd.  The show is at Gillson Park at Lake Avenue and Lake Michigan and starts at 9:30.  Starting at 4 pm tomorrow, Wilmette is having a Tastefest and carnival rides for the kids.  View their Web site for more information.

Buffalo Grove: You’ll be able to view their fireworks from three locations starting at 9:15 pm July 4th.  You can see them at the Buffalo Grove Golf Course, Rotary Village Green, or Willow Stream Park.  Starting at 7 pm, the Buffalo Grove Symphonic Band will be playing a concert at the Rotary Village Green.  More details here.

Libertyville: Fireworks begin at 9:30 on July 4th at Butler Lake Park, located on Lake Street west of Milwaukee Avenue.  In the Butler Lake Band shell, the Libertyville Village Band will play a concert at 7:30 pm.  View their site.
