Independence Day 2011: July 4th Fireworks in The Philadelphia Area


As much of the country deals with record-breaking droughts, wildfires, and sweltering temperatures, the Philadelphia region is getting off rather easy this Fourth of July. 4th of july fireworks phillyExpect temperatures to be around 90 degrees Monday and humid from South Jersey to Allentown and Lancaster. And, while that's certainly hot it's not extreme weather like we experienced in early June.

Things are so bad throughout the country - many July 4th fireworks celebrations have been cancelled due to the risk of starting wildfires. Even though we're not facing any wildfire alerts in the Philadelphia region, it's important that we let the professionals handle the "heavy fireworks."

Aside from parades and cookouts, fireworks displays are an equally important part of our Independence Day celebrations.

For those who were unable to make it down to Penn's Landing for the fireworks, or on The Parkway after Philadelphia at Wawa's "Welcome America" event, there are plenty of festivities happening on this July 4th.

Clifton Heights, Aston, Radnor, and Lansdowne will be holding their Fourth of July Fireworks shows in the evening.

Downingtown, Treddyfrin, and Phoenixville will also be holding their July 4th Fireworks shows on Monday evening.

Or if you're in the Pottstown area (which happens to be my hometown)- Pottstown will be holding their fireworks at Memorial Park at 10:00 P.M. on the 4th.

If you're looking to head down to the Jersey shore for a day, then here is a pretty comprehensive list of Jersey Shore fireworks celebrations on this July 4th.

And, the fireworks won't stop on Independence Day, check out this site for Chester County's fireworks throughout this summer.

From Philly2Philly.com we wish you a happy and safe Fourth of July!
