In 1947, the Des Plaines, IL, Fire Department put on a 4th of July fireworks show. The Des Plaines Post of the American Legion held a Summer Festival at Rand Park that year, running from July 1st-July 6th, which climaxed with a ticket holder winning a 1947 Ford Super DeLuxe Convertible Coupe. The fireworks show was part of these festivities. Other nightly awards from the festival included 21 Jewl Lord Elgin wrist watches, 7 tube Majestic phonographic radio combos, GE electric blankets, a “Mus-alarm” radio clock, Schwinn bicycle, and many more prizes.
