Check out this list of Central Ohio fireworks displays. Several days worth of Independence Day celebrations in the Columbus area! Where will you celebrate the 4th of July?
After a year off due to the pandemic- I can’t wait to hear Lee Greenwood sing, “I’m Proud to be an American!” as the fireworks light up the sky. And while some annual 4th of July celebrations are not back in Central Ohio just yet- sorry no July 3rd Red, White and Boom (but maybe later for Labor Day), here are some places around Central Ohio where you can celebrate our Freedom!
Thanks to ABC6 for this listing of Columbus Area Fireworks. One not listed? Leave a comment below about your community’s celebration.
