Sandwich postpones fireworks show
Three of four Independence Day fireworks shows in the county are set to go on as scheduled, despite hot, dry conditions.
In DeKalb, Kirkland and Shabbona, local fire departments have doused with water areas where fireworks will be shot to keep the ground from being too dry. Sandwich officials have decided not to hold the fireworks show that was scheduled for Sunday.
Cindy Capek, executive director of the DeKalb Park District, said DeKalb’s show will begin between 9 and 9:15 p.m. at Hopkins Park and last about 30 minutes. She said city and park district officials were 99 percent sure the fireworks are still on; the only wild card is the wind.
