The heart of Independence Day is not in the festivals or the parades.
Rather, it’s in the way communities come together to care for each other during times of trouble. In the spirit of loving and protecting our neighbors, most 4th of July festivities have been canceled this year. However, many Dayton towns and organizations are still committed to lighting up the night sky with fabulous fireworks that you can enjoy safely from your yard, street or nearby viewing area.
