Chicago's North Shore Real Estate

Chicago’s North Shore Communities Love the 4th of July!

Independence Day is only a couple weeks away, and many North Shore residents are starting to plan their festivities. While some prefer to remain in the comfort of their own North Shore home’s backyard and throw a barbecue, others can’t wait to get out to their North Shore community’s annual celebrations. Here’s what is going on this 4th of July across Chicago’s North Shore.


July 3rd & 4th
Deerfield Family Days will take place both days, with entertainment and fireworks at Brickyards Park at 9:15pm on July 3rd. On July 4th, Jewett Park will host a pancake breakfast along with activities that will include arts & crafts,  a gourmet food market, bike show, dog show, the rotary 10K race, a petting zoo, pony rides, a parade, a flower show and food concessions.


July 4th
Evanston's 4th of July Parade will begin at 2pm and will start at Central Park on Central Street through to Ashland Avenue. The Twilight Concert will begin at 7:30pm, with Lakefront Fireworks starting at 9:15pm. The musical fireworks display will be launched from Clark Street Beach and can be viewed from any part of the lakefront area east of Downtown Evanston.

The celebration will begin with a children's decorated bike parade at 11:15am with the main parade starting at 11:20am. It will be kicking off at the intersection of Harlem and Glenview Road, heading south on Harlem, then marching west on Central before ending at Johns Park. At the Glenview Golf Club at 7:30pm, the Twilight Show will begin with a patriotic concert by the 100-piece North Shore Concert Band. The show ends with fireworks at dusk, synchronized to patriotic music.

I’ve always loved how each community has its very own celebration. The communities on Chicago’s North Shore really have a close knit feel about them, encouraging togetherness of the residents. If this sounds like an atmosphere that appeals to you, please contact me for more North Shore real estate information. If you already live in the area but are considering purchasing a new home or selling your current, I would also be happy to hear from you. Have a safe and fun 4th of July!
