Chicago and Suburban 4th of July Fireworks Schedule 2011

by Amanda on July 1, 2011

“Where liberty is, there is my country”

– Benjamin Franklin

The 4th of July is a time for friends and family.  But more importantly it is a time for remembering those that have given and fallen to protect our freedom over the years.  Where we often overlook this part as we picnic and share time with those closest to us, one need only look down any Main Street of America to witness our pride.  Flags, Yellow Ribbons and Fireworks remind us of our past and more importantly our future.

The flag that flies along the streets of the United States stands not only for our country, but for the ideals our forefathers sacrificed to secure for us.  Since them, many have continually dedicated their lives to protect these rights that often we take for granted.  So on this holiday celebrating the birth of our Nation, take some time to remember why we are able to celebrate today.

Below is a list of the 2011 Chicago and Suburban Fireworks Schedules celebrating Independence Day.  I hope that you will take some time to relax, spend time with those closest to you, eat too much, and spend an evening relaxing under the sky.
