This awe-inspiring fireworks display takes place after dark, but there is plenty to do leading up to the day's spectacular finale! Pottawatomie Park opens at dawn and offers 90 acres of space, perfect for a picnic and a day of recreation and relaxation. Bring your own picnic, or purchase food from the concession stand, and enjoy the baseball diamond, sand volleyball, and tennis courts and playground. Play a round of golf at the 9-hole golf course or challenge the family to 18-holes of mini golf along the river. Swanson pool is located adjacent to the park, so there is plenty to do for the entire family. In the evening, enjoy live music leading up to the fireworks display over the Fox River. Come to St. Charles on the 4th of July for food, fun, and fireworks!
