Fireworks won’t be the only thing lighting
up the sky for the Fourth of July at the 16th-annual LaRosa’s Balloon
Glow at Coney Island — tethered hot air balloons will illuminate the
park with glowing color all evening.
Washington Park is getting in on the
family-friendly red, white and blue fun with its Fourth of July Jam, a
day of live music, carnival games and a truly jammy screening of The
Grateful Dead’s “Fare Thee Well” performance at Soldier Field —
celebrating the Dead’s 50th anniversary, as well as the remaining
members’ final performance together.
