Time to Wave ‘Old Glory’ – 4th of July Events for Texas & Illinois

July 4 Events in Illinois and Texas

Everything’s bigger in Texas and 4th of July celebrations are no exception. If you love barbecue, fireworks and live music, you’ll find everything you need in our 4th of July Events Guide to plan an Independence Day to remember.

Of course, Chicagoans would argue that there’s no better place to pay homage to the stars & stripes than a summertime pyrotechnics spectacular over Lake Michigan.

Wherever you find yourself on the 4th to celebrate our nation’s birthday, Happy Independence Day from Taylor Morrison!
