Whether you live in Buffalo Grove, Vernon Hills, Hawthorn Woods or the surrounding suburbs, their are many options to choose from…..
The Fourth of July is the day that keeps the lives of those who fought for our country’s independce forever in our hearts. Over time this day of remembrance has evolved into a weekend full of picnics, barbecues, and fireworks. The patriotism: the flag waving, red, white and blue clothing and celebrations continue to live on. I can not think of another day filled with more fun, pride and excitement. My friends, family and I have been looking forward to this year’s fireworks for weeks and have not hesitated to start making our Fourth of July plans. Below are some options that we have considered; perhaps we will see you there!
