After discussing the dry conditions in the City of Evanston, Mayor Williams, in conjunction with the other local and county officials, including the Fire Department, the ban on fireworks will not be lifted any time soon. This decision comes about for two reasons, one is the continued forecast of hot and windy weather, and second the Evanston City Council has to formally approve additional days and this has not been discussed at this time.
The City is exploring options for a future date for the public display that was originally planned. We will update you on this information when the date has been determined.
