The annual Chicago Fireworks Show takes place on the lakefront at 9:30 p.m. on July 4. With over 1.5 miles of firework shots and music synchronized to the music, this show is sure to be spectacular. Though many people look forward to the display, the aftermath of the pandemic and recent mass shootings have left many worried about the safety of the public. While Chicago officials have downplayed the potential dangers, many are looking forward to the show and the fireworks that will accompany it.
The Biggest Fireworks Show in City History
The Chicago Fireworks show will be the biggest ever in city history. The fireworks will cover 1.5 miles of the riverfront and the lakefront.

Aside from the fireworks display, there will also be a live concert and dancing at Navy Pier. In the event that you can’t make it to the event, there will be a simulcast of the show on WBBM Newsradio.
