You don't have to go to Columbus to see great fireworks this holiday weekend. There's several locations and dates to choose from right here in Licking County, you could even go to a different show each day!

I like fireworks, I don't like crowds - I think there's plenty to see right here in Licking County. But if you want to brave the traffic and crowds to see THE BIG SHOW, Red White & Boom ~ It's Friday July 1st (tomorrow) downtown Columbus ~ 10:00pm
Whatever you decide to do, do it safe! Don't drink and drive, don't text and drive, don't get road rage when you're stuck in traffic you were warned about and don't put any of your body parts in front of any fireworks!
