UPDATE:  This was originally posted in 2006.  Wherever you might celebrate, either in Chicago or one of the Chicago suburbs, have a safe and happy 4th of July fourth of july fireworks in chicago suburbscelebration. If you don't have any plans you might want to drive to Winnetka to see The New Invaders play.

The celebration will be held at Duke Childs Field at Hubbard & Willow in Winnetka, IL, with the band starting at 6:30 and ending at 9:00 and the fireworks will be shot off afterwards.
