At approximately 9:30 p.m. on July 2, the skies over Oakton Community College will illuminate as they celebrate Independence Day with a dazzling display of fireworks. Enjoy from the Oakton parking lots (inside your vehicle or outside, next to your vehicle), from the grounds or maybe even your own back yard.
Guests are permitted to enter the grounds at 7 p.m. on Friday, July 2. Please note, Central Road will be closed to accommodate the fireworks display so all guests should enter the campus from Golf Road.
No parade this year, but they hope it’ll be back next year!

Three days of events in Peoria and East Peoria, including live music and fireworks, July 3-5, 2019. The website says it’s the biggest fireworks display in Illinois; and it’s something like $100k worth of fireworks, which is one honking big show.
Celebration begins at 6pm; there will be live music. Bring a picnic basket if you like (but no alcohol please) there will also be food and beverage concessions.
The fireworks display is located on the east side of Emricson Park. Most spectators watch the display from the park’s sledding hill. The Committee charges a fee to park in Emricson Park, which is used to help pay for the costs of the fireworks. Donations are also accepted at the entrance gate. Anyone attending the fireworks can walk into the park from the Jackson or South street entrances. Cars will be permitted into the park only through the South Street entrance. Emricson Park has around 600 available parking spaces, most of which fill up by the time the fireworks begin, which is typically sometime between 9:15 PM and 9:30 PM.
If you’d like to donate to the fireworks fund, contributions can be sent to Woodstock Fireworks Fund, c/o Golden Eagle Community Bank, P.O. Box 1930, Woodstock, IL 60098. Your community thanks you!
The Celebration will include a 5K walk & run, A Patriotic Prayer Breakfast, Live Music and Entertainment, Patriotic Parade and concludes with a 30 minute firework show synced to music over downtown Rockford. Check the site above for the full daily schedule.
They really need donations this year, so please give if you can.
