Create your own fireworks show

If going to see fireworks is out of question, make your own show. It’s possible to set off your own fireworks as long as you follow the protocols and do it in areas of your county where it’s allowed. This way you can celebrate the Fourth of July with your neighbors while avoiding the large crowds.

Make sure you also check out your communities guidelines for personal firework displays.
