Northwest suburbs to team up for July 4 fireworks

June 17, 2012 (CHICAGO)

Some of the communities canceled or scaled down shows in recent years because they could not afford them.

According to ABC7 news partner the Daily Herald, Elgin, Hanover Park, Hanover Township and Hoffman Estates are banding together to pay for fireworks at the Northwest Fourth Fest from July 4 through July 8.

Also, suburban Mt. Prospect is collecting donations with its "Bang for a Buck" campaign.
