Tips for protecting your pets during fireworks on Independence Day”

MARTINSBURG -With Independence Day right around the corner, the Eastern Panhandle is gearing up for firework displays, BBQs, parades and more.

Specifically, a handful of MI state parks and recreation areas where a fireworks-free Fourth of July experience is being offered. This is an ongoing list.

Cities big and small across the United States will celebrate the country's Independence Day with fireworks displays on Wednesday night. Injuries related to fireworks most often affect the hands and fingers. Fireworks will kick off at about 9:45 p.m. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free, and fireworks are at dusk. The CPSC encourages you to check the local laws in your city, town, or county to make sure the fireworks you want to use are legal. Festivities begin at 4 p.m. Parking is available for $5.

The sprawling metro area offers a variety of fireworks events, with among the most popular being AmericaFest, at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, shooting off fireworks at 9 p.m.

Troy: Troy's Old Fashioned Fourth of July will feature a parade, vehicle show, arts and crafts vendors, food booths, and much more in Roosevelt Park. More recently, New Jersey and DE - formerly two of the only three states in the nation with bans on all consumer fireworks - loosened their fireworks restrictions in 2017 and 2018, respectively.

There will be a parade in the morning at 8:00 a.m. and the Freedom Festival from 10:00 a.m.to 2:00 p.m. and will include carnival rides, a hot dog eating contest, games, food trucks, music, and vendors.

Riverside will host two fireworks shows on Independence Day: Sierra Park and the Evergreen Memorial Historic Cemetery. Food stands open at 11 a.m. Fireworks begin at dusk.

There will be picnics, fairs, music, and, of course, fireworks displays around the Capital Region this week. Swimming at the park is open to the public from noon to 5 p.m. Mini golf and concessions will be open from 11 a.m.to 9 p.m. It will launch from Roc Park, located at 200 Rex Place.

The event will feature food vendors, a beer garden, and family friendly activities. Some animals can become destructive when frightened, so be sure you've removed any fragile items.
