I'm looking to approach the City Council about setting up a designated public area for residents to blow off their fireworks. I know that Lockport has a show, but I thought it would be fun to create a more grassroots event. I put on a little show in my subdivision each year, but last year the police shut me down. I'm putting it on again this year (hopefully), but thought if there were a central area for everyone, we could enjoy each other's displays, maybe the night of July 3rd. I was thinking maybe doing it as a preshow to the July 4th show at the same location. Any advice anyone has, please let me know!

Why in the world would Lockport support an illegal event?

Imagine how much they'd be sued for when someone got hurt at their illegal firework even.t

So long as you keep your house up and water your lawn go for it but if you are one of the taker d-bags that can find $300 for fireworks but wants more of my money to send your 5 snot nosed kids to school with free meals and subsidize your every whim then a big fat HELL NO.

I agree. Most fireworks are illegal in Illinois, but most of the time you'd never know it. They've already started shooting them off by my house. Most of the time I don't really mind, but after 9:30pm, enough already! Now with it being so dry out, I'm a little worried about the higher risk of fire, too.

All fireworks of any type should be banned from anyone but professionals. My husband's co-worker's kid spent last 4th of July in the ER and came close to losing his sight and both hands. Idiot - and he's over 18.

Illegal fireworks are a danger to everyone around and our property as well. Don't be that douchebag that sets the neighborhood or yourself on fire.

Just set off your illegal fireworks right by the police station; it will make it easier for them to arrest you and escort you right into the lockup!
