We can probably assume that both you and I are keeping our fingers crossed that Awful Arthur doesn't wreak havoc on our Independence Day celebration plans. And you might be wondering where you can catch some fireworks nearby. There are many options, and many that require you gathering the troops, getting in the car and potentially battling traffic. But you're in luck - there's a show right here in St. Charles. Friday night, on the lakes of Smallwood Village, between 9 and 9:30, there will be a great fireworks show. Bring chairs or a blanket and park at the Smallwood Village Shopping Center. Perfect timing for you to enjoy the St. Charles free concert series with Steve Hickman and John Devine at O'Donnell Lake (10400 O'Donnell Place) and then head over to catch the fireworks by the lakes of Smallwood Village!
The show is generously sponsored by the Smallwood Village Association, Inc. which includes the Bannister, Huntington and Wakefield neighborhood associations.
