Celebrate the 4th of July all weekend long
Whether your Fourth of July agenda has you lighting off fireworks at your own home or heading out to a big public show, we’ve got you covered.
If you’re buying your own, look to the right and enjoy shopping advice on the latest safe-and-sane fireworks.
If you’re looking for somewhere to go, then check out the list of Valley events below.
Local fireworks shows range from the well-attended and well-known, like the Fresno Grizzlies’ annual post-game show, and all the festivities of Freedom Fest at Buchanan High School.
Beyond that, though, our Valley is littered with smaller, community celebrations — such as Exeter’s big bash.
Fourth of July festivities are planned all across the Valley this year.

You don’t have to wait until the Fourth either. Some celebrations, like Kerman’s, are a day early. Others, like Wild Water Adventures,’ have a four-day run.
Just think, it’s entirely possible to go on a four-day firework bender.
