The first time I ever saw Fourth of July fireworks on a date other than the fourth, I threw a fit.

It’s the FOURTH of July, not third nor second nor fifth. It blew my 12-year-old mind. What was this anarchy?

Fortunately since then I’ve slowly relented to the fact that some places do in fact launch fireworks on different days. I will be seeing my display on the fourth, but regardless here is a listing of local fireworks displays to celebrate our Independence Day:

Cumberland County

Dauphin County

Lancaster County

Lebanon County

York County

LOL. Growing up in the Fireworks Capital, We never had fireworks on the 4th. We had them ALL THE TIME any other time. So, it wouldn't even bother me. I mean, other places have them on the 4th. But, the city doesn't. It is so normal to wait til the next week to have the big fireworks display. We have Fireworks at our Christmas parade for goodness sake LOL. 

I will see if I can get dates & times in our area.

 Where I live we can just make out the fireworks they ahve after the baseballs games occasionally.  I don't know how they decide when they should have them but they seem random!  I love fireworks :)

We may do that one, since my husband will have to work the night of the fourth.

We have them all the time. But we have two very large fireworks companies here that started here. Most of the big displays you see, are one of the two from here. I still love fireworks. I posted Lawrence county, you can see, we have alot & for a lot of things, LOL. And that is just the big stuff.

August, I can't wait for that. Fireworks convention. That will be awesome to see & it is the week of my birthday :)

 I don't have next weeks schedule yet but chances are I'll be working the 4th.  I don't mind though.  I get to watch the Hersheypark ones when I get off at 10 then.

Yeah. 

He has off the 3rd, and then goes in on the night of the 4th, which doesn't make any sense, because if you don't work 3rd shift, you have the fourth off.

We hated 3rd shift for that reason. Hubby always had to go in like on Easter, which meant, he had to sleep to go in, so, ya that killed Easter. An things like that. Have to go in on night before because they are 3rd so they still have to go IN on the holiday.
