Success - Article sent! close

Carol Stream's Fourth of July parade and fireworks display have been canceled for safety reasons, organizers said Tuesday.

Rick Gieser of the Carol Stream July Fourth Parade Committee made the announcement after meeting Tuesday morning with village officials. Gieser said officials were concerned there wasn't enough time to remove debris from Sunday's storm.

"We always want to make sure the public and the residents of Carol Stream are safe," Gieser said. "We just think it's best to have the parade canceled."
