In the spirit of America’s 248th birthday, fireworks will fill the skies in all corners of Wyoming, and elsewhere between, after dusk on Thursday, the Fourth of July.

Firework displays are scheduled throughout Wyoming from Wednesday through Friday, most starting between 9 and 10 p.m. If there isn’t a show planned in your community, there should be one within easy driving distance that evening.

Along with watching organized shows, many people enjoy sparking their own fireworks at home. Many city and county fire departments are reminding people that most types of fireworks are prohibited within city limits in some communities and banned on all state and federal lands.

Here’s a list of the big fireworks displays in Wyoming that Cowboy State Daily has confirmed, along with the time and location where the shows will be launched from. Those are the areas to avoid, as most communities have the area around launch zone closed to the public.

All the shows will be held the evening of July 4 unless otherwise noted. If we missed a show, please email us at News@CowboyStateDaily.com.
