The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays. Parades, watermelon and of course fireworks. Here is a list of fireworks displays scheduled in Nashville and Middle Tennessee.
This year, with social distancing things are going to be different. Nashville’s fireworks will be on TV and several cities have cancelled their celebrations. However, we can still all celebrate, and hopefully, things will be safely back to normal in 2021.
If you know of more please leave a comment and we will add it to the list so everyone can celebrate America’s birthday! Make sure to check the dates – some celebrations are before and after July 4th.
