    Fireworks and the 4th of July go hand in hand and for nearly five years Fallbrook's annual “Grand Tradition July 4th” fundraiser has brought its audience a great show. The tickets cost $25 and that even includes dinner to go along with the view.

    Nothing says the Fourth of July like a good round of fireworks, and there will be plenty of shows to catch in the Chicagoland area this weekend.
