5 Best Fireworks Displays in Utah for the 4th of July

It’s almost time for BBQ, apple pie, proudly hoisting your American flag and finishing off the night with a beautiful fireworks display. The Fourth of July is in just a couple of days and we can’t wait for the festivities. While the pyrotechnics are the star of the show, here in Utah we like to sprinkle in rodeos, races and world class entertainment.
