All of us here at Alta Pro Insurance Services hope you have a safe and happy Fourth of July holiday.
We could all use a little celebration after the past 18 months.
And if your idea of celebrating the Fourth includes fireworks, you’re in luck. Skies from Addison, Texas (better known as Kaboom Town!) to Washington, DC (where the 41st annual Capitol Fourth festivities will resume with its traditional fireworks display at the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool) will be brightened this year by rockets, sparklers and red glare all across our grand and glorious country.
The best news: most of the events can be enjoyed via livestream from the comfort of your own home.
“After a pandemic-induced hiatus last year, many places in the United States known for their Fourth of July celebrations will be back in action for 2021,” reports CNN Travel and writer Forrest Brown. “The highlight of many of those celebrations? An awe-inspiring display of fireworks, of course. Those who can’t make the trips to enjoy the shows in person can catch many of them on live streams and TV broadcasts.”
Here is a CNN Travel itinerary and schedule for some of the nation’s most spectacular Fourth of July celebrations. Below are some highlights.
