The City of Aurora's Independence Day fireworks show has been rescheduled for 9 p.m. on Friday, July 27, 2018.
Guests can enjoy the free show from the same two convenient locations at RiverEdge Park, 360 N. Broadway, and McCullough Park, 128 W. Illinois Ave., in downtown Aurora.
"The decision to cancel the fireworks was made in the best interest of the thousands gathered along the banks of the Fox River for the evening's festivities," said Mayor Richard C. Irvin. "Safety is our top priority. We appreciate everyone's patience, understanding and cooperation during the evacuation process. We'll come back together in a few weeks and enjoy a wonderful Friday evening watching the fireworks."
As an added bonus, the Downtown Alive concert already scheduled at RiverEdge Park on Friday, July 27 is free to attend. Heartache Tonight, one of the finest Eagles tribute bands in the country, will perform from 8 p.m. until the fireworks begin at 9 p.m. and then resume the concert at 9:30 p.m.
Doors at RiverEdge Park open at 6 p.m. Guests can begin gathering at McCullough Park also at 6 p.m.
Parking is available throughout the downtown area. There will be no shuttle buses for the rescheduled event.
