Are you ready to experience an All-American 4th of July? We've rounded up some of the amazing communities that are putting on a show on the holiday weekend! Fireworks aren't your thing? No problem! From air shows to made-from-scratch eats to carnivals and concerts, there's more to see than the razzle dazzles at the end of the night. Remember, some events may not have a nighttime spectacular, so click through to each event to learn a little bit more about what you can experience while you're there!
