Mark Your Calendar For Independence Day Fireworks
With the long holiday weekend approaching, many of us start thinking about the next summer holiday, Independence Day. If you've been around for a bit, you know that Uptown enjoys a local fireworks show, easily seen from the north end of the community, thanks to our neighbors at a tucked-away country club.
The Saddle & Cycle Club, at Foster and Marine, has confirmed that it will be holding its annual fireworks display at approximately 9pm on Wednesday, July 4th. (Last year it started at 9:10pm.)
While only members of the club and their guests may watch from inside the club grounds, the fireworks can be seen in the surrounding areas. Residents can watch the show from Kathy Osterman Beach, Foster Avenue Beach, Margate Park, and from friends' homes along Foster Avenue and Marine Drive.
If your view looks south, Navy Pier will be holding its fireworks show at 9:30pm on July 4th.
UU Note: Want to know more about our very low-key 123-year-old neighbor? Uptown Update did a "Flashback Friday" feature about the Saddle & Cycle Club a few years ago.
