Fourth of July festivities were conducted Tuesday night in Burr Ridge, where the Pleasant Dale Park District celebrated with fireworks at dusk.
Chris Yesutis of the Park District staff said the decision was made last year to move the annual fireworks ahead a day.
“We felt having it a day beforehand would give families more time to spend together on the actual holiday,” she said.
