There will be military color guards, fires and law enforcement agency members, marching bands, Boy Scouts, dance troupes, Knights of Columbus, military vehicles, vintage cars decked out in red, white and blue and more. The only exception to the rule is public displays that have received the proper permits. The Maryland Symphony Orchestra's Salute to Independence concert is slated to begin at 7:30 p.m. with fireworks beginning at approximately 9:45 p.m.

Cherryfest NW, formerly known as the Bite & Brew of Salem, will have free admission for the Fourth of July and will have Salem's biggest fireworks display just after dusk.

Columbia - No fireworks can be discharged before 9 a.m. and no fireworks shall be discharged after 10:30 p.m. with the exception of New Year's Eve when the discharge of fireworks will cease at 12:30 a.m. The entertainment surges on main stage live with opener Joel Crouse and headliner Phillip Phillips.

The annual celebration, this year marking the 242nd anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, is organized the city Recreation and Parks Department and the Greenville Noon Rotary Club. The National Weather Service predicts a high of 88 with a 30 percent chance of storms after 2 p.m.

Weather for the event is also expected to uphold a July 4 tradition: it will be hot with a chance of showers and thunderstorms. Come early to enjoy music, food and beverage vendors for purchase.

Westmoreland - Fireworks are permissible two weeks before and after July 4. Wednesday, July 4, 11am to 3pm at The Lark (131 Anacapa Street). The Hawkeye State repealed "the silliest law ever" in 2017, joining the rest of Illinois' neighbor states in allowing the sale and use of a variety of fireworks. Streets close at 3pm.
