The annual fireworks display on July 4 at OPRF.

I need to know why Wrigley can house 40,000 fans in the friendly confines by the end of this week, yet the village of Oak Park can’t figure out how to set fireworks off for 50,000 residents in three weeks.

We don’t need the tennis courts and sports fields if congregating is the issue. Let us watch from our own homes and backyards with the people we feel comfortable with. Let the residents make the decision on how to watch responsibly.

Absolute overkill from the village of Oak Park, once again. Super disappointing.
