Chicago Fourth of July Celebrations

Fourth Fireworks
Celebrate the fourth in Chicago whichever way you’d like!

Summer in Chicago is one of the best times of year, and the Fourth of July is one of the best celebrated holidays in the city. Take a break from settling into your new Hansen Realty rental, or checking out apartments with your Hansen Realty leasing agent, to celebrate America in style.

Free Fireworks at Navy Pier: Sure, they happen every night, but this time it’s much more appropriate. Fireworks Begin at 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 4.

Grant Park Music Festival – Independence Day Celebration in Millennium Park:What other way to celebrate America than with some classical music? Gershwin, Copland, Bernstein, Sousa, and other favorites will be performed. Begins Wednesday, July 4 at 6:30 p.m.

W Chicago Lakeshore Boom with a View: The 7th floor Wet Deck of the W Chicago Lakeshore Hotel (644 North Lakeshore Drive) is the best spot in Chicago to view unobstructed views of the 4th of July Fireworks. The deck opens at 7pm – 10pm with Grill fare and speciality cocktails ( $75 adults and $25 kids / under $12 FREE). RSVP by calling (312) 943-9200.

Shoreline Sightseeing – Architecture Fireworks Cruise: Up for something a little more relaxing? This dramatic, nighttime cruise takes riders down all three branches of the historic Chicago River for a glittering view of the city’s iconic skyscrapers. The evening ends with a front-row seat for Navy Pier’s spectacular fireworks display from the mouth of the Chicago River. Wednesday, July 4 at 8:30 p.m.

Winnemac Park: Every year, an unknown neighbor puts on a fireworks display in Winnemac Park while the locals of North Center watch in awe. Grab a lawn chair or a blanket and head to Foster and Damen to enjoy the show. Make sure to pick up after yourself!
