Rockford Fireworks: Saturday, July 1 or Tuesday, July 4?
To me, this is a no-brainer. Would you rather take your family to watch the fireworks on a Saturday or a Tuesday? Rockford's 4th of July committee wants to know.
'Mr. 4th of July' Joe Marino told mystateline.com that in the 54 years he's been a part of planning the fireworks show, thy've only moved the show to a different date three times. The committee believe that fewer families would attend if the fireworks show was to be held on Tuesday, July 4th.
