I've usually gone to the Stone Arch Bridge in Minneapolis for fireworks on the 4th but am thinking about doing something different this year. The Pioneer Press put out an article of all the cities hosting fireworks on the 4th of July. Here are some of the choices:
Apple Valley: Fireworks will start around 10 p.m. avfreedomdays.com
Forest Lake: Fourth of July fireworks will be shot off at 10 p.m.
Maplewood: “Light It Up Maplewood” will be from 4 to 10 p.m. July 4 at Hazelwood Park featuring food trucks, a bean bag tournament, family activities, music by the Twin Cities cover band “Good for Gary” and fireworks.
Minneapolis: Fireworks will begin along the Minneapolis Riverfront at 10 p.m. Spectators are recommended to watch the light show from the Stone Arch Bridge, Gold Medal Park, Mill City Museum, Guthrie Endless Bridge, Lake Bda Maka Ska, Hennepin Avenue Bridge, Nicollet Island or restaurant rooftops. minneapolis.org
Mystic Lake Casino: The free, all-ages “Rock and Rockets Fourth of July Celebration” begins at 5 p.m. July 4 in the Mystic Amphitheater, featuring food trucks, Ben and Jerry’s ice cream, live music and fireworks at dusk. “The Voice” stars Kat Perkins and Jesse Larson will be performing.
White Bear Lake: The White Bear Lake fireworks display will be launched over the north end of the lake starting at 10 p.m., preceded by a patriotic band concert at West Park at 8 p.m. and a vintage Navy plane flyover.
