Independence Day is traditionally celebrated with fireworks displays, which evoke the history of the Revolutionary War. Just as Francis Scott Key wrote in the Star Spangled Banner, “oh the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air…” today we celebrate not with live ammunition but a pyrotechnic show that’s a glory to see.

Here’s a handy collection to links with information about all sorts of celebrations around Arkansas. This year’s schedule includes displays starting on Wednesday, July 3rd and continuing through Saturday, July 6th.
