When you live on the Eastside, there’s usually no need to head out to attend a formal 4th of July fireworks show — there’s usually someone nearby lighting up the night sky with colorful skyrockets, bombs and other fiery displays. But, if you want to be on the safe side and attend a legal fireworks show, as well as other celebrations, here are some of your options during the upcoming holiday :
