Independence Day Fireworks Display: July 3rd at Dusk!

The annual Independence Day fireworks are a favorite community event that offers an opportunity for neighbors and friends to celebrate a family oriented evening together on beautiful Bangs Lake.

Due to the high cost of production, the Village relies on generous donations from our local governmental agencies, organizations, homeowner associations, residents, and businesses that believe in the significance of this patriotic event.

Please consider a donation to our annual celebration. No amount is too small! The Village acknowledges all contributors on the Village website and in all Village electronic communications. Contributors of $1000 or more also have their name posted on a large sponsor board in front of Village Hall on Main Street.

A Contributor Form is provided below for your convenience. 
If you have any questions about this program, please contact Deb Ogorzaly, our Economic Development Coordinator, at 847-526-9609, or by e-mail at:
