The best fireworks in the country? I say it’s Winnetka, Illinois.

4th of July Fireworks from ralph braseth on Vimeo.

I’m not sure if they are the best in the country, but Winnetka certainly has the best firework display I’ve ever seen. Really wonderful viewing area filled with families. No drunks. Lots of kids. Lots of smiling. What a great experience. Experience courtesy of Herb Ritchell, a colleague and friend from Loyola School of Communication.
