Independence Day Fireworks Show Update

 

Crystal Lake – The City’s Independence Day Fireworks Show on July 2, 2017 ended prematurely due to an error in the firework vendor’s computer control system.  Originally, the body of the show was scheduled to last 26 ½ minutes, followed by a 1 ½ minute grand finale.  Due to the computer error, the show’s 1 ½ minute grand finale did not activate, thus shortening the show.  The City apologizes for the shortened show and the confusion that followed.  The City utilizes a private vendor to provide the show and actions will be taken in the future to resolve this issue.
