The free show Friday, July 27 will be visible from the same two locations at RiverEdge Park, 360 N. Broadway, and McCullough Park, 128 W. Illinois Avenue., in downtown Aurora.
“The decision to cancel the fireworks was made in the best interests of the thousands gathered along the banks of the Fox River for the evening’s festivities,” said mayor of Aurora, Richard C. Irvin. “Safety is our top priority. We appreciate everyone’s patience, understanding, and cooperation during the evacuation process. We’ll come back together in a few weeks and enjoy a wonderful Friday evening watching the fireworks.”
