Happy Fourth of July in Oak Park begins with the annual parade at 10am on Monday, July 4th along Ridgeland Avenue between Longfellow Park and Whittier Elementary School.  Fireworks, which is always a great show, begin at dusk at Oak Park River Forest High School.  

Forest Park is planning an all-day bash on Monday, July 4th starting at 10am and finishing off at dusk with their firework celebration.  There will be a Food Court with many local restaurants participating, Bingo, kids' games, a concert, and a "Rock the Park" flash dance!

"Bushwood*4th of July*Ribfest" starts on Friday, July 1 at 3pm and runs through Monday, July 4th at 8pm.  It's held at the Bushwood Golf Practice Center, 30 Madison Street on the border of Forest Park, just east of 1st Avenue.  There'll be food, lots of bands, and more.
