The tradition of fireworks is returning to Roselle again this summer on Monday, July 3 at Lake Park High School West Campus, 500 W. Bryn Mawr Ave. This free family event includes a "Party in the Park" presented in partnership by the Village of Roselle and Mission Church, with live music from Modern Day Romeos starting at 7:00 p.m. The fireworks display, jointly sponsored by the Exploding Turkey Trot 5K and the Village of Roselle, will begin at 9:30 p.m. The Roselle Police Department would like to remind everyone that firearms, dogs, and alcohol are prohibited at the Independence Day Celebration.
Turkey Trot 5K
At the January 9, 2017, Village Board meeting, Exploding Turkey Trot 5K Race Director Patrick Devitt made a donation of $8,000 to the Village toward the 2017 fireworks display. The donation came from the proceeds of the 3rd Annual Exploding Turkey Trot race, which was held on Thanksgiving morning.
"Not only is the Turkey Trot a wonderful community event, but the proceeds help fund our July fireworks celebration," said Mayor Gayle Smolinski. "Patrick saw a need and found a way to help us fill it. It is a great job by all involved!"
