The Village of Gurnee suspended the 4th of July Fireworks in 2009 due to the budgetary impact and availability of shows in nearby areas. The Village sponsors a fireworks show for Gurnee Days that is a more cost-effective option and will be on Saturday at 9:30 p.m. at Viking Park during Gurnee Days. For a list of nearby communities with available July 4th Fireworks shows, see the below information:
