I seem to recall that there was a pretty impressive fireworks display around Belmont Harbor either last year or the year before (or both). Does anyone know who was responsible and whether it is planned again this year?

    Ohhhh I hope so!! This is mine and my husbands first year in the city for the fourth (I've lived here for over a decade - just usually in Wisconsin for it) and we live right at belmont harbor. Didn't know what we should do!

  • Happy 4th a good spot to watch the fireworks is near the Columbia Yacht is way less congested and has good outs for egressing afterward . Good luck and enjoy the holiday.

    You can also see most of the lakefront fireworks from the pier on pratt beach ( or whatever the new name is ).
    The show of people going completely bat shizzle @ the beach doing their personal fireworks is much more entertaining .

    There isn't an organized fireworks (except for at Navy Pier) but there are lots of people who put on their own shows.

    in years past, L, there has been a multi-thousand-$$$$$ show that was better than any small towns' organized fireworks.... these weren't just the random fireworks you see there as well, it was a half hour production complete with grand finale etc.. Not sure if this was "organized" or not but there were definitely people saying it would happen, prior to it happening. I wasn't around there last summer but there def. was a spectacular show the two prior years.

    The question is, will there be one this year? I haven't seen anyone talking about them. You can always go to Winnemac park.
