Traffic Advisory – 4th of July Fireworks
The Annual Bartlett Fourth of July Fireworks Extravaganza is scheduled for July 4th at Community Park located near the intersection of South Bartlett Road and Stearns Road. Chicagoland Skydiving Center begins at 8:30pm. The fireworks are scheduled to start at 9:30pm and finish at approximately 10pm.
Help keep the community looking beautiful and safe for kids and pets. Plan ahead: bring a plastic bag with you to place all your disposables in. The Bartlett 4th of July Committee will be passing out garbage bags to spectators in efforts to help keep the festival grounds clean and easier to pick up after the fireworks. Sparkler sticks, glass bottles, and other debris are often left in the community field and are not only an eyesore, but a safety hazard to others around you. Please bag any garbage you have and place by or in a garbage can. Thank you for doing your part to keep it safe and fun for everyone!
