The Palatine Jaycees are once again sponsoring the 55th annual Fourth of July Hometown Fest celebration from June 29 through July 4 at the Community Park on Palatine Road and Northwest Highway.
The most anticipated event during the celebration is the fireworks display. The fireworks show will be held on Tuesday evening, July 3 at approximately 9:30 p.m. at dusk. This year’s show will, according to Co-Chair Jackie Butler, "incorporate all of last year’s crowd favorite pyrotechnics as well as some that the committee feels the community will appreciate."
