We love the red, white, and blue so much around here that 4th of July fireworks in Connecticut start as early as late June and continue well past the Fourth of July. Love the holiday? Take advantage of several different types of events from 4th of July fireworks to festivals to full town-wide celebrations complete with Fourth of July parades.

In addition to catching one of these 4th of July fireworks displays at night, you can celebrate at home with 4th of July desserts, Independence Day crafts, and more from our list of the Best At-Home Fourth of July Activities for Kids.

Before heading out, check the weather forecast and parking restrictions, especially at beaches. Some venues allow nonresidents to pay for parking on-site, but others require passes to be purchased in advance at a separate location or are open to residents only.
