July 4th, fireworks and family fun go hand-in-hand, so Patch has put together a listing of all the shows coming up in your area and neighboring communities.
Our collaborative map wil allow you to add your own favorite spots to view the fireworks, and we invite you to share those places with your neighbors in our comment section below.
Share your tips and advice on which show is the most spectacular, where you can spread out and enjoy a picnic and the best places to park.
The interactive map lists fireworks shows and other events and festivities all around the suburbs, .
The map shows pins with all the area fireworks shows and links back to the important details — when, where and how to get there. If you need any more information from us, just let us know.
And you can drop a pin on the map, too, to help out your friends and neighbors. Just click the big red "Edit" button to the left of the map and then drop a pin or use the hand to navigate around the north suburban area to see what's available. You can also zoom in and out.
We can't wait to hear from you!
