These Fireworks Displays In Alaska Will Drop Your Jaw

Their is absolutely no denying that the last frontier comes alive during the sweet, sultry summer months. With long sunny days and warm nights under the midnight sun, forcing yourself to get enough sleep can become quite the trying task. Things really heat up a notch when we all come together to celebrate our freedom. Because the midnight sun makes the sparkling lights hard to see (until it’s really late at night/early in the morning), many might not think that the 4th of July fireworks are something to write home about.

But we are here to prove to you that celebrating Independence Day in Alaska will ruin you for life, in the best way possible. From endless events, outdoor vendors and epic parades in our larger cities to hardcore races, delicious bbq cook-offs and beautiful cultural celebrations in our smaller towns – there is no way you can escape this weekend without having the time of your life. No matter what region you are in, there is truly something for everyone. Get ready because these 10 fireworks shows in Alaska will utterly make your jaw drop.
