August 04, 2022 –
The Winnetka Park District, along with the Village of Winnetka, had high hopes of rescheduling our Fourth of July fireworks display for this year’s Fall Fest.
After extensive communication with members of the Village of Winnetka, the Winnetka Police Department, Winnetka Fire Department, and Winnetka Public Works Department, and taking into consideration the spatial limitations and safety concerns due to the stormwater management construction and possible Park District venue, a collective decision was made to not host fireworks this year.
The safety of our community is always at the forefront of our minds when planning and hosting family-friendly events. This decision was not made lightly, but ultimately, the determination was made with the best interest of our community in mind.
Though there will not be fireworks at Fall Fest, we would love to see you and your family enjoy all the activities, great food + drink, and entertainment planned for the event.
Should you have questions or concerns, please contact Superintendent of Recreation, Kyle Berg, at email@example.com.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding.
