Fourth festivities planned at Reed Bingham

July 1, 2004

Cook County - If you haven't made plans for the holiday weekend yet, Reed Bingham State Park in Cook County is full of 4th of July festivities.

The park may be empty now, but come Saturday, rangers expect the area to be covered with more than 25,000 people. There will be pontoon boat rides, reptile, shows, a watermelon eating contest, and live bands.

The day will end with a huge fireworks show. "The Friends of Reed Bingham State Park decided to purchase more fireworks this year so the show's going to be bigger, it's not actually going to last longer, you're just going to get more bangs in the same amount of time, so its going to be a real massive show," said Chet Powell, Organizer.

The festivities will run all day Saturday, with the fireworks starting at dark. Admission is free, but there is a $2.00 parking fee.
