Last year was kind of crazy with how many towns decided to forego their Independence day fireworks displays. This year, there are a few communities that decided to cancel their events and I listed them only so you would know that your town has decided to skip Independence Day celebrations. After a lot of emails, phone calls, and website searching, this list is what I came up with. If you have any updated information, please be sure to share in the comments!
Please note that some of the 2021 Independence Day Fireworks Displays actually take place on July 2nd or 3rd or 5th in 2021. I have linked to the town (and city) websites so you can check out the source of the information yourself. I cannot be responsible for any municipalities that change their minds or change dates and times. And, I am definitely not responsible for the weather. Some of the towns and cities have listed raindates; some have not. Give a call to your local city hall or town council in advance of the 4th if you are worried about rain.

● City of Tonawanda Mayor Rick Davis and Council President Jenna Koch are announcing that there will be Independence Day fireworks on July 5th at dusk at the foot of Gibson St in Niawanda Park.
“Normally the fireworks are set off from Tonawanda Island, but because of the short notice, we could not get the proper clearances to fire them off from there this year. So, this year they will have a different look and feel, but hopefully, that will equate into a better fireworks display.”, said Mayor Davis.
