The Village of Lombard will be hosting a Fourth of July fireworks display on Monday, July 4, at Madison Meadow Park. Free shuttle bus transportation to and from designated parking locations will be provided.
The shuttle buses will pick up and drop off from three locations: Madison School, 150 W. Madison St., Pleasant Lane School, 401 N. Main St. and Glenbard East High School, 1014 S. Main St. Pick-ups from these locations will all go directly to the fireworks display location at Madison Meadow Park. Bus locations are indicated with banners, and exact pick up and drop off locations are also marked with signs. A handicap accessible bus will be available. The fireworks are scheduled to begin at 9:30 p.m. The shuttle buses are provided courtesy of the Village of Lombard and funded through the Hotel/Motel tax fund.
Please note that Wilson Ave. is under construction and will be closed to all traffic between Stewart and Edgewood Avenues. Traffic impacts are expected and residents are encouraged to utilize the free shuttle bus services.
The Lombard Police Department would like to remind residents and visitors to the event to be conscious of temporary “No Parking” signs. Violators of posted parking signs will be subject to ticketing. The temporary residential street restrictions are necessary to ensure that spectators will be able to enter and exit the Madison Meadow Park area with minimum delay or hazard. The Lombard Police Department hopes the parking system will enable clearing of both vehicular and pedestrian congestion within a short time after the display ends. Violators will be towed at their expense. Handicapped parking will be available in the lot located off of Wilson Ave., at the south east corner of the park.
Members of the Lombard Police Department will maintain crowd control within Madison Meadow Park and stationed at strategic intersections to assist in traffic and crowd control. The Police Department will vigorously enforce all state and local law – in particular the use of firecrackers and drinking alcohol in the park. The Fire Department will post a rescue ambulance and one of its fire trucks inside the park to handle injuries or fire situations.
