Thanks to all who joined us last night for the Blue Island Fireworks Festival! What a beautiful evening! We want to say a special thank you for bearing with us as we experienced a much larger crowd than expected, which made for some long lines and a shorter evening in the beer garden than we had hoped. We have wonderful ideas already to ensure we can avoid those issues next year!
At the heart of this event was the spirit of teamwork and love of community that we at the Chamber of Commerce are so proud to be a part of… Thank you to our vendors, sponsors and entertainment, the incredible group of volunteers who had the park grounds sparkling, Blue Island Park District for absolutely saving the day with snow fencing, tents, chairs, garbage bins, and smiles all day long, the City of Blue Island, Illinois for their partnership and being the most gracious of event hosts, Blue Island Police Department, Emergency Management Services, Blue Island Fire Department, and Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago for allowing us use of the beautiful waterfall park.
