While the 4th of July is usually firework displays in every town, BBQ's like mad and the beaches over-flowing with fun...COVID has led us to a modified version of "summer".

Phase 4 is allowing us to get together safely in groups of 50 or less, and some counties are even doing firework shows too!

It may not be what we are use to, but fun is still being had as we find our new normal!

Check out the list of places having fireworks for the 4th below and let us know if there are any we can add to the list!

Have a social-distancing-safe and happy 4th! :p
