The Biggest Fireworks Displays Across the Country


Forget about the dawn's early light, this Fourth of July is all about the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air and maybe even a couple of spiders. Those are the ones that, well, look kind of like a spider, anyway.

In honor of the Fourth, here are 10 great fireworks displays throughout the country. If your city didn't make it, don't worry, we're sure it's just as good.


New York, New York


America's most famous fireworks display is in America's most famous city. Macy's 4th of July Fireworks returns to New York's West Side for the 35th year with 25 minute show that features more than 40,000 fireworks.


Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


There are few better places to watch a Fourth of July fireworks display than the city where our Founding Fathers ratified The Declaration of Independence. Philly’s 'Fourth of July Jam and Grand Finale Fireworks' features an epic fireworks display and music from Philly's own ?uestlove.


Boston, Massachusetts


When it comes to Pops, it's the Boston Pops or bust. And what better place to see them than along Boston's Charles River as one of the biggest Fourth of July spectaculars on the planet explodes overhead.


Washington, D.C.


The National Mall is the place to be on the Fourth of July. Every year, thousands pour into our nation's capital to take in the immense pyrotechnic display. There's nothing quite like seeing those fireworks explode over the Washington Monument.


Lake Tahoe, Nevada


The synchronized fireworks display at South Lake Tahoe is among the largest West of the Mississippi. Deployed from a barge on the lake, some adventurous attendees venture out onto the water to get a little closer to the action.


Addison, Texas


Raved about in USA Today and The Wall Street Journal, Addison, Texas' 'Kaboomtown' celebration features a massive, half-hour long fireworks display followed by a movie under the stars.


Fort Bragg, North Carolina


Home to the Army's Airborne and Special Forces divisions, North Carolina's Fort Bragg also hosts a mesmerizing fireworks display complete with a parachuting exhibition.


St. Louis, Missouri


For over three decades, 'Fair St. Louis' has presented a Fourth of July celebration in the Rome of the West. This year, you can catch a tremendous fireworks display right in front of the famous Gateway Arch.


Honolulu, Hawaii


The best way to extend your Independence Day celebration is by catching the Ala Moana Center's Fourth of July Spectacular in Honolulu, Hawaii. It may be July 5th in the rest of the country, but in Hawaii the Fourth still rages on.


New Orleans, Louisiana


There's nothing like a little friendly competition to up your fireworks game. New Orleans' dueling barges on the Mississippi provide just the kind of one-upmanship that makes for a truly unique and extravagant display.
