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 celebration. If you don't have any plans you might want to drive to Winnetka to see The New Invaders play.
I attended last year and the fireworks were great (so was the band). Bring a lawn chair or blanket. It is going to be a little colder tonight than it has been recently with less humidity. So dress accordingly.
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.
