Grant Park Concert and Fireworks 

When: Fri., July 3, 7:30 p.m. 2009
The city's annual fireworks display is held on July 3 by tradition, ostensibly to ensure that attendees don't have to work the following day. As the Taste of Chicago festival winds down for the day, 85th Army Band will play a patriotic selection in the Petrillo Music Shell at 7:30 PM. The fireworks start at 9 PM and are scheduled to last 20 minutes. This year, the city warns eager claim jumpers that "fireworks fans staking their plot of land at the festival will not be allowed onto Taste grounds until 10:45 AM."
