July 3 FIREWORKS - RIVERFRONT PARK
In celebration of the Independence Day Holiday, North Aurora will be hosting Fireworks again this year on Tuesday, July 3 at Riverfront Park in North Aurora (behind the Village Hall). Prior to the fireworks at 9:30, start the evening with music in the park beginning at 6:30 p.m. Join your family and friends for a relaxing evening – bring a picnic or snacks and B.Y.O.B. will be allowed in the park in designated areas.
At 6:30 p.m. enjoy the music of The New Vintage Strings, a quartet who will be playing their classical take on some well-known pop tunes. The quartet members are principal players in the Fox Valley Orchestra. Following the quartet, at 8:00 p.m. enjoy the patriotic themed music of the Fox Valley Brass Band, a 30 member band of the Fox Valley Orchestra, to get everyone in the mood for a fantastic fireworks display.
Parking will be available at the parking lot on the corner of State Street and Lincolnway/Rt. 31 (by the community sign) and at Island Park (across the street from Riverfront Park). The village hall parking lot will be closed to the general public with the exception of a limited number of handicap parking, to allow for viewing of the fireworks. Residents in close proximity to Riverfront Park may want to bike or walk to the park, as parking will be limited. North Aurora police will be directing pedestrian traffic to assist with crossing on State Street.
As a reminder, the Fox River trail will be shut down on the east side of the river between State Street and the Red Oak Nature Center, beginning in the afternoon, to prepare for this event.
