There’s no better way to celebrate summer the American way than with loud bright things blowing up in the sky. For a healthy dose of over-stimulation, celebrations all around town light up the sky with brilliant, not-so-subtle displays. Most of the action happens at the height of BBQ season, but here’s a list of the firework action going on now through September.
