Get Ready for the Fourth: Find a Fireworks Display near You (Copy)

Article excerpt

Independence Day is Saturday, and there are plenty of opportunities nearby to ooh and ahh at spectacular fireworks displays. Fair St. Louis in Forest Park is the largest, but if you can't make it there, or are looking for something a bit more low- key, there are others to choose from. Because of soggy conditions, some municipalities have relocated (or canceled) their celebrations, so check for the latest before you head out. By Caitlin Grove
