Independence day…

30 Jun

is right around the corner. As advertised, Chicago will be changing things up with their display: 3 locations, synced to music (played on an FM station) instead of 1 location. I heard last night that some towns, due to the economy, will NOT be having fireworks. So, in an effort to inform, here are a list of towns in the Chicagoland area that are having fireworks and when they are having them. If you want to see fireworks on a certain day, try this site. It seems to have a good list.

I’ll update this list as I see more added. If you know of any that aren’t listed, please let me know!
