The annual July 4th fireworks show will again be presented by the Great American Lightshow Association (GALA), the local nonprofit that has overseen the annual Independence Day celebration in Oak Park for decades.

GALA is a community-wide collaborative effort that includes representatives from the Park District of Oak Park, Community Bank of Oak Park-River Forest, Oak Park and River Forest High School, the Oak Park Police Department and the Oak Park Fire Department. Community Bank is the presenting sponsor of the event for the 13th consecutive year.

The fireworks grand finale is once again underwritten by Wednesday Journal. The fireworks show begins at dusk, just after 9 p.m., on Wednesday, July 4, at the Oak Park and River Forest High School stadium near the intersection of Lake Street and Linden Avenue. Approximately 25,000 spectators attend the fireworks show annually. In case of postponement due to inclement weather the fireworks show will be held July 5.
