2018 4th of July Fireworks Canceled for Freeport
If you were planning on spending your Fourth of July watching fireworks in Freeport, make other plans.
What a bummer story!
My Stateline is reporting that Freeport is cancelling Fourth of July fireworks this year because of the cost.
A press release sent to My Stateline included the following:
Our hope is that a group will step forward to coordinate and fund-raise for a July 4th 2019 event.
Several area towns are hosting events. A few of them that we have been able to confirm are as follows:
Belvidere Sunday, June 24th dusk Fairgrounds Durand Wednesday, July 4th dusk School Galena Wednesday, July 4th dusk Grant Park (parade at 6 PM) Stockton Wednesday, July 4th dusk Blackhawk Park (Rain Date July 6th)
