Have a blast at these 10 local fireworks displays

Posted by Samantha Haas on Friday, June 23rd, 2017 at 4:31pm.

When tents start popping up next to gas stations along country roads, you know it's fireworks season. 

But sometimes it's best to let the pros handle the big shows.

The Madison area is full of events where you can watch the colorful displays and hear the booms, from summer festivals to Fourth of July celebrations.

Most of the 10 events listed below around Dane County for 2017 are free to attend and also offer live music, food and kids activities. Fireworks will kick off around dusk (most start between 9:20-10 p.m.), so be sure to get there early and check the event websites just in case they are canceled due to unfavorable weather. And have fun!
