The City of Kankakee’s Independence Day celebration and fireworks show was held Saturday at Kankakee Community College. The show was one of several in the area celebrating the long holiday weekend.

Earlier this year, it was announced Peoples Bank of Kankakee County would be sponsoring the City of Kankakee’s fireworks show in honor of the bank’s 60th anniversary.

“It seemed like a fitting thing to do,” Peoples Bank President Jeff Hammes said of the bank’s commitment to fund the entire $24,000 fireworks show that lit the sky for 25 minutes.
