Hi Kristin, Looks like you have lots of choices in your area. Our Big Bay Boom has the biggest show and as you might remember , it was a Big Bay Bust last year when all the fireworks accidentally were set off all at the same time leading to only an explosion.

Hi William,

I remember your show was a big hit for about 30 seconds. It was so sad and I recall they were going to come back and do another one for free. Hope they kept their promises. Perhaps the city has found someone new this year. Have a great 4th.

Hi Laura,

I am sure your city has a spectacular fireworks display. Have a happy 4th and be safe. Stay out of the sweltering heat this weekend that is blanketing the US.
