From Top 40 hits to classics to your favorite movie scores, they know it all and play it all. Finally, the night ends in a breathtaking, jaw-dropping fireworks extravaganza that will blow your socks off and make you realize Aurora ain’t the City of Lights for nothing. Sounds great, right? That’s not all. We’ve got local food vendors and inflatables for the kids. The City of Aurora is also graciously providing free park and ride shuttle services from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., providing roundtrip transportation to 13 convenient locations throughout the city. The shuttles will resume service after the fireworks display with the latest departure set for 11 p.m. But wait! There’s even more! Before the fireworks start, be sure to take part in an attempt to create a world record for the most people head-banging to “Bohemian Rhapsody.” It’s going to be a rocking time! SCHEDULE: Park Opens at 3pm; American Legion Band at 6:15pm; Fox Valley Orchestra at 7:45pm and City of Aurora Fireworks at approximately 9:35pm. IMPORTANT!
