Despite the fact that fireworks are illegal in Evanston, the pop and crackle of Roman candles, skyrockets and firecrackers are heard and seen nightly throughout the City.

On July 4, the legal and public fireworks show has taken place on the lakefront for years, but it was cancelled this year because of the pandemic.  Still there were a few stealth celebrations around town.  Here are photos taken at the lakefront and Lovelace Park.
