You Won’t Want To Miss These Incredible Fireworks Shows In Cleveland This Year

The Fourth of July is a great time of celebration in Northeast Ohio. Entire counties are decorated in red, white, and blue, and the festivities are plentiful. Parades kick off the celebrations, but everyone is undeniably gearing up for the epic firework displays that grace our area. Last year, we took a look at our favorite firework displays, and in 2015 we spread the word on the top 20 fireworks shows in Ohio. As we draw closer and closer to Independence Day, you might be wondering, “Where can I find firework displays near me?” Fortunately, we’ve compiled a list of five explosive shows that you simply must see, and below that you will find shows throughout Cuyahoga and its surrounding counties. Happy Independence Day!
