Lombard Fireworks

Where: Madison Meadow Park (Taste of Lombard), Meyers Rd north to Madison St west

Naperville Fireworks

When: July 4th @ 9:30PM

Where: Knoch Park (Ribfest), Aurora Avenue & Washington area

Parking / Information: Free parking is extremely limited. You may be able to find some street parking in the neighborhoods west of Knoch Park, but that is not guaranteed (and you may need to walk for a mile or so to the park. Plan to walk to the fireworks or take a free shuttle. Get to the fireworks early; due to capacity issues, Naperville may deny entry to the park. Personally, I’ve found the display to be no more impressive than many of the other DuPage County villages’ displays, and it’s twice the headache getting in and out. Ribfest is a great time, but if I were just going for the fireworks, I’d go elsewhere. More information about the Naperville firework display can be found here.

Warrenville Fireworks

When: July 4th @ 9:15PM

Where: Cerny Park, off River Rd just north of Ferry Rd

Parking / Information: Parking available as posted on the streets, at the south parking lot of Bower Elementary School and the Ferry & River Rd. parking lot of AT&T. More information can be found here.

Wheaton Fireworks

When: July 3rd @ 9PM

Where: DuPage County Fairgrounds, County Farm Rd and Manchester

Parking / Information: There is a decent amount of parking onsite, but it is recommended you get there early to find a spot. The lots usually open by 6:30PM. This is one of the better firework displays in DuPage.
