Fourth of July Spectacular: The largest Independence Day celebration in New Braunfels includes a free concert and fireworks over Landa Lake.

Those looking to celebrate America by blowing up a small piece of it this Fourth of July will want to take an extra close look at their state's fireworks regulations.

Atlanta - July 4 - Ponce City Market and the Old Fourth Ward Business Association are hosting the inaugural Fireworks in the Fourth Ward event.

A fireworks show over Lake Menomin starts at dusk.

By 3 p.m. people already put down lawn chairs and blankets to save a spot for the show. That followed a 2003 fire, started by teenagers using fireworks purchased legally, that destroyed a home in a neighborhood where the use of fireworks had been banned by the city a year earlier - because of the high fire danger.

Traditionally, folks would pack up the kids in the auto and trek to downtown Atlanta to see the fireworks at Centennial Olympic Park or maybe at Six Flags Over Georgia, or perhaps sticking around after the Braves game.

Unlike people, pets don't associate the noise, flashes and burning smell of fireworks with celebration.

- A Fourth of July Community barbecue will be from 11 a.m.to 1 p.m., at the Blackfoot Senior Center.

The fun begins at 4:00 p.m.at the Great Meadow on West Campus and the Winslow Maxwell Overlook on East Campus (see link to campus map below).

The cheaper alternative is to watch the fireworks in Downtown L.A., starting at 9 p.m., from Grand Park. (Parking opens at 6 pm.) Fireworks start at dark, approximately 9:30 pm.

The Aquarium of the Pacific will have it's own July 4th celebration called the Late Night at BBQ.

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay: Live music, performances, and an extended fireworks display begins at 8:30 p.m. included with park admission.

From 11 a.m.to 6 p.m., the Sellersburg Pool will celebrate the holiday with $1 hot dogs and ice cream. The fireworks begin at 10:15 p.m.

Despite the two public, professionally-produced fireworks displays that members of the Fayette County community can enjoy on July 3 and 4, it is likely that the crack of illegal fireworks will be heard throughout many neighborhoods. Craft and food vendors, music, boat rides and family friendly entertainment throughout the day. The heat should break a bit by the time the fireworks show begins, which will be around 10 p.m.
