The 4th of July is literally around the corner and since it's my favorite holiday, I had to take a look to see what there was for fireworks shows in Central Minnesota.  Here are a few that look pretty cool to me!



July 4th Fireworks and Celebration, St. Cloud



Enjoy fireworks right on the river!

This year is the 68th annual 4th of July fireworks display. The fireworks, which are synchronized to music, are shot off from a barge in the Mississippi River so viewers can see from both Hester and Wilson parks.

There will be food available as well as several activities for the kids.  The National Guard 134th Infantry Division Red Bull Rock Band will perform from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Hester Park.  The Red Devils will perform from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Wilson Park.
