Fireworks are part of the traditional celebrations of the United States on July 4, when the Independence Day of that country is celebrated.
This tradition, that of making a light show with fireworks, came to the United States from the 18th century, in a celebration of 1777, a year after independence was declared. That year, a celebration in Philadelphia included 13 fireworks in the Commons honoring the 13 colonies.
And in the late 19th century, Italian migrants, settling in the United States, brought fireworks to the country. The United States now consumes fireworks in massive quantities in honor of the holiday, importing more than 428 million pounds of consumer and display brand fireworks in 2021, according to the American Pyrotechnics Association.
For 2022, the festivities are already being prepared with shows so you can enjoy the fireworks in public places. Here are some fireworks shows scheduled for the 4th of July.
