Don't miss the “Racing, Music and Fireworks” spectacular this year at Arlington Park! A great day of horse racing and music by day, and the BEST fireworks display in Chicagoland by dusk.

The day’s racing starts at a special post time of 4 pm and the racing action will run nearly seamlessly into a spectacular fireworks display that gets underway at nightfall. We'll have live music on the band stage in the Park by I-Pop throughout the day and into the evening.

The amazing fireworks display, which will run more than 30 minutes, will be synchronized to a mixture of patriotic and popular music, and will encompass the entire infield area of the racecourse.

Don’t take our word for it, come see for yourselves! The first 20,000 in attendance will receive 3D Fireworks Glasses, and the first 1,000 kids will receive a complimentary Firecracker Popsicle.
