TWILIGHT SHOW CONCERT & FIREWORKS
,
Gallery Park, Patriot Blvd & Navy Blvd, Glenview, IL 60026

The 2015 Glenview 4th of July Twilight Fireworks will be held at Gallery Park. The traditional location at Glenview Park Golf Club is unavailable this year due to a major renovation of the course. The 140-acre Gallery Park (located behind Park Center) was selected for the 2015 show due to its location, size, access and parking.

As always, the program will begin with a patriotic concert by the 100-piece Northshore Concert Band. Following the concert, a sparkling display of fireworks will light up the summer sky to a recorded musical score. Make your plans now to be part of Glenview’s 50th annual Independence Day Celebration!
