Celebrate the summer season with a Twilight Fireworks show at Gallery Park on Friday, August 19.

The Glenview Park District invites the community to grab a picnic dinner from home or their favorite local restaurant and enjoy a Live DJ beginning at 7:00 p.m., followed by a 26-minute fireworks show synchronized to music. Fireworks will begin at approximately 8:20 p.m.

“This is a great opportunity to come together as a community and celebrate one of our last Friday evenings of summer,” said Michael McCarty, Executive Director of the Glenview Park District. “We’re working closely with the Village of Glenview Police, Fire and Public Works Departments to help create a safe, secure and enjoyable atmosphere at the park.”

The Glenview Police Department will be providing an enhanced layer of security by deploying additional officers in key locations. The Village’s Public Works team and Park District staff will also be working with the Police Department at the event to provide crowd and traffic control support.

Patriot Boulevard (between Chestnut Avenue and West Lake Avenue) will be closed to traffic on Friday, August 19, beginning at approximately 5:30 p.m. All VIP donor parking passes purchased for the canceled Glenview 4th of July celebration will be honored at the Park Center parking lot; new passes will be issued for this event. VIP donors can pick up their new passes at the Park Center front desk beginning on Monday, Aug 8. All other event parking will be free.

Food will not be sold at the event. Event goers arriving early to picnic should plan on bringing their own blankets and food items. Portable toilets and handwashing stations will be located throughout the park.
