The 4th of July is this Monday! If you’re looking for a fireworks show in the Phoenix area, we’ve tried to list the best of the best below.
Like we did in last year’s article, we will also separate the shows by city, link out to each event’s website, if one exists, and indicate the cost (free vs. paid admission). If you’re debating between two or more different shows, make sure you visit the events’ websites, because some of them are just fireworks shows, but many of them include much more like live music and games!
