The quarantines are over. The hot days and warm nights of summer are here. And many of us want to get out and see some fireworks with friends and family over the Fourth of July weekend.

Of course, the coronavirus pandemic of the last year caused some towns, like Lee's Summit, to not budget for fireworks shows this year because of not knowing if our communities would be open or not. While other towns like Sedalia haven't skipped a beat holding fireworks shows last year and this year.

If you're looking to check out some "sky candy" over the Fourth of July, here are the communities holding fireworks shows. Some communities are even doing more than fireworks shows too. For complete information on each of the events click the links.
