Orland Park continues its tradition of spectacular fireworks display
Mayor Dan McLaughlin was with his family and about a thousand other local residents for the village's annual 4th of July Independence Day fireworks celebration Sunday night.
It was spectacular.
Although many suburban communities are facing difficult times, Orland Park has managed to hold the line, and while it trimmed back some of the traditional events at the celebration, it went all out for the fireworks, which is the primary reason why so many families come out each Fourth of July to Centennial Park just west of the Orland Park pool.
It's an annual tradition for my family. The band was entertaining. The speeches were short. McLaughlin spent much of his time on the grass greeting residents and just having some fun.
Thanks Mayor McLaughlin and the Village of Orland Park Board for another spectacular 4th of July Fireworks Independence Day celebration:
Here's the video from the event which I hope you enjoy as much as my family did.
