In these times of uncertainty and confusion people are looking for anything familiar and others are looking forward to the light at the end of the tunnel. Let fireworks be that light!

Each year Alabamaians hit the road to bear witness to magnificent displays of light shattering  explosions in the sky on the Coosa River.  This occasion, on July 4th, celebrates the United States declaration of independence as a country.

This year we expect firework shows to be stellar and awe-inspiring. So, we thought of you and gathered some information on when and where some of these shows are. 

When you’re out enjoying the river we hope you think of us as well! Tag us in your photos on Instagram, Facebook, & Twitter!
