If you’re looking for fireworks to celebrate the 4th holiday weekend, I’m going to just go ahead and suggest that maybe it’s best to leave it to the pros and see a real display instead of trying to do it on your own and blow off a finger or something.
Here are a few places to check out over the next few days…
Navy Pier’s fireworks schedule on Wednesdays and Saturdays works out great for the holiday this year! You can catch them tonight at 10:15pm and on the 4th at 9:30pm… just make sure you get there early, because once they reach capacity, you won’t be able to get on the pier.
Six Flags Great America is featuring fireworks shows tonight and every night through July 4th at 9:45pm.
Naperville Ribfest will start their fireworks display on the 4th at dusk.
