What a difference a year makes! Last year, many Fourth of July fireworks displays were canceled because of covid-19 concerns. This year, there are plenty to choose from -- pick any of the sites listed below to celebrate the holiday with a bang. Some events list start time as "at dark"; sunset Friday, Saturday and Sunday is at 8:37 p.m., so that might help you make plans. And some events that have finite seating (like the Walmart AMP) open their gates much earlier than start time; please check the event's listing online for that information. Happy Independence Day!
