Sponsored by Glenview State Bank 

Join your friends and neighbors for the twilight fireworks you enjoy every year, with some great new changes based on your feedback. The fireworks will be longer and bigger than ever, and you will have an opportunity to enjoy food from local vendors. The show begins with a patriotic concert by the 100-piece North Shore Concert Band. The fireworks show will be synchronized to patriotic music.

Following the fireworks, music entertainment will be available if you prefer to linger while the crowd disperses. The Village and Police Department have developed a new traffic exit strategy. Click here for more informationBike Glenview 70 pix high
