A classic family tradition is to gather around on a picnic blanket and watch a fireworks show in July! Not only is it safer than lighting your own fireworks, it’s an exciting event for both youngsters and adults.
This year in Central Kentucky, we have a couple of fabulous fireworks shows lined up. Now this list is NOT all of the festivities across the Bluegrass, but just a few you may want to check out.
