Celebrate America at these fun 4th of July events

Important fireworks laws every Hoosier needs to know for the Fourth of July

The parade features floats, cars, marching children, horses, motorcycles, and more.

For those who stay home in Southern Indiana, options are booming for local events to attend.

Although several venues have celebrated with fireworks preceding July 4, there are several locations in Maryland that have taken the liberty of setting off day-of fireworks in celebration of America's independence. Starts at 2 p.m. with fireworks at 9 p.m.

Snellville - July 4 - Star Spangled Snellville begins at 4 p.m. with family-friendly entertainment, including food vendors, inflatables, train rides and a space ball on the Snellville Town Green.

Lawn chairs and blankets are encouraged at the event.

Fireworks are a big part of the Fourth of July celebration, but they're not a hit with everyone.

This year's theme for the parade is "Celebrating American sOIL". Parking for the parade will be in the field at the intersection of Highways 35 and 82. There will be music and lots of children's activities.

Across the country, this Fourth of July is the first that many people will be able to call themselves US citizens after participating in naturalization ceremonies.

Netflix is Testing a New, More Expensive 'Ultra' Subscription
Aside from HDR support that would of course require compatible hardware, there are no other new features in the Ultra plan. Its website says the company may need to adjust prices to " respond to local market changes" such as taxes or inflation.

Durant, Warriors agree to short-term deal
Remember that Durant began his career with the Seattle SuperSonics and somewhat frequently mentions the Emerald City wistfully. He is still able to create his own shot, but the Warriors don't really need that skill with four other All-Stars on the team.

DeMarcus Cousins Agrees To Sign One-Year, $5.3M With Warriors
The Warriors made a steeper investment on that down payment, throwing opposing teams scrambling on how to bolster their roster. To think, the Warriors previously spent the first day of free agency losing out on potential targets.

The fun begins at 4:00 p.m.at the Great Meadow on West Campus and the Winslow Maxwell Overlook on East Campus (see link to campus map below).

In Lake Oswego, a Star Spangled Parade and Celebration & Firework Spectacular will kick off with festivities at Millennium Park and then fireworks at George Rogers Park Upper Ballfield at approximately 9:45 p.m. The fireworks begin at 10:15 p.m. There is a free concert at 8 p.m. Local vendors and food trucks will be there, including King of Pops and pours from wine tents as well as from local brewers Creature Comforts Brewery and Three Taverns Craft Brewery.

While the fireworks shows in Washington Court House and Jeffersonville are sure to delight thousands of people, it's important to keep in mind that your pets will not be delighted by the noise of the explosions.

Cookouts, pool parties, family, friends, and something that never fails to make an appearance on the Fourth of July: FIREWORKS! The concert starts at 7:30 pm followed by a fireworks display.

Anytime fireworks are being set off, there are certain recommended safety precautions to take. They will be also passing out United States flags for attendees. People wishing to set off fireworks on New Year's Eve can set off fireworks from 10 a.m. - 1 a.m. Why pay money for your own just to get injured, he asks. According the most recent U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission annual fireworks report, there were 12,900 fireworks-related injuries nationwide treated in hospital emergency departments in 2017. If you pick it up, use gloves or grill tongs and discard it in a bucket of water.

Every year when pets get spooked they often times run away.

Make sure your pets are wearing identification tags so if they do become lost, they can be returned promptly.
