Five Local Firework Displays to Celebrate July Fourth
Every Fourth of July, our surrounding communities help celebrate Independence Day with spectacular firework displays. Oftentimes, the firework shows are preceded by special events and activities during the day. The festivities are a great opportunity for us to spend some time with friends and neighbors. So pick a firework display, grab some extra blankets or lawn chairs and bug spray, and invite the family next door to join you for a fun evening outside!
