One of my favorite holidays is the 4th of July.  I love the hot and humid weather this time of year, grilling, and all of the celebrations that are happening throughout our country.  They are looking a little different this year due to Covid-19, but we still have a lot of great firework celebrations going on in our area.  Check out the list below of all the towns that are still celebrating this year, and if you do go to watch, be sure to bring all of the items below too...otherwise it could be a miserable time.

10 Must-Have Items When Watching Fireworks in Minnesota

Keeping our kids safe and happy on the 4th of July is one of my number one concerns as a parent.  Headphones are on the list because I realized a few years ago that one of my kids really had a tough time with the loud noises and the bright lights.  We always bring sunglasses and headphones when we go see fireworks, and even bring these when we know that fireworks are happening at a baseball game or other event.  It has saved us from A LOT of extra tears and sadness.

If you are looking for sparklers and glowsticks, check out the dollar stores in the area.  We have found great deals on these fun items for my kiddos.  They sometimes have other items that light up too, which make the entire night fun for the kids and affordable for you.

What is a must-have item that you always bring when you watch fireworks?  I'd love to hear about it..  Please, send me a message on my Facebook page (Jessica On The Radio) or DM me on Instagram and let me know.
