Are you ready to see some fourth of July fireworks?  Last year, many fireworks displays in WNY were canceled due to COVID, but for 2021 we’re seeing some hit the schedule again.

Fun 4 Kids has a complete list of fireworks displays throughout WNY!  We’ve also made note of other 4th of July celebrations around town, like parades or festivals.  If we miss one you love, please contact us so we can add it to the list.

If you find other fireworks in WNY that you love, contact me!  I’ll add them to the list.
