Niles fireworks set for July 3
The Four Flags Area Chamber of Commerce hosts its annual fireworks display at dusk on Thursday, July 3, at the Apple Festival grounds, corner of Lake and 17th streets, Niles.
Rain date is July 4.
The festival grounds will be filled with vendors selling food and refreshments from late afternoon, and portable toilets will be put up on the festival ground.
Fireworks watchers will find ample parking in the area.
Ron Sather, Chamber president and CEO, encourages watchers to remain at the fairgrounds after the first round of fireworks is done.
Sather said there will be a pause to separate the traditional fireworks from the display of the big bomb.
Sather said dusk will be around 9:30 p.m., but people are welcome to come earlier to find a good place from which to watch the fireworks display.
