Celebrate the 4th of July with fireworks at Pottawatomie Park in St. Charles

Live music kicks off the free event at 6 p.m.

ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles Park District, in cooperation with the city of St. Charles, will once again host its free 4th of July fireworks extravaganza. The show can be best viewed from Pottawatomie Park or Ferson Creek Park, according to a news release from the park district.

The band Shout Out, which performs Top 40 hits to classics, will provide live entertainment beginning at 6 p.m. at Pottawatomie Park's pavilion.

Prior to the fireworks and entertainment, bring the family to Pottawatomie Park, which opens at dawn for those who want to spend the entire day celebrating. Picnic tables are available on a first-come, first-served basis, so patrons are encouraged to bring their own tables, lawn chairs and blankets. Hot dogs, bratwurst, popcorn, ice cream and more will be available at the River View Miniature Golf Course concession stand, which will remain open until 9:15 pm.

Patrons are encouraged to take advantage of the many activities at the park, including hiking and biking trails, volleyball, baseball, miniature golf, tennis and more.

Swanson Pool will open at 10:30 a.m. for park district residents and season pass holders and at 11:30 a.m. for non-residents. The daily admission fee is $7 for residents and $11 for non-residents. The pool will close at 6 p.m. on July 4.

In the case of inclement weather, the fireworks will be held the next available evening.
