When & Where Can I See Fireworks?


By Becky Ogann

Below is a list of area firework displays celebrating America's Independence Day.

Please note new locations in some communities due to the record flooding much of eastern Iowa experienced in June 2008.

As always, be sure to let us know if we missed your town! Just email webmaster@kcrg.com.

Have a happy and safe 4th of July!
