Allow your imagination to lead you there.
As blankets are unrolled, frisbees fly, and picnic baskets overflow with fruit, potato salad, and sandwiches, the breeze flutters.
In the beer garden, drinks are yanked from iced coolers, and beer flows from kegs. As laughter echoes through parks and children play on playgrounds, you can almost feel the joy on your skin. You can hear the cheers as the Kane County Cougars take the field and the sun sets over the Chicago skyline. Suddenly…
Over the lakes, the night sky explodes with the most vibrant reds, blues, yellows, and greens.
Crowds applaud as sparks fly, fizzle, and whirl, creating a brilliant light show against the moon and stars. As hundreds of people stare in awe, the energy skyrockets and you can feel the buzz.
This is the setting for one of our most enjoyable American holidays and events -
