Omaha 4th of July Events 2011
It is finally that time of year where everyone from sea to shining sea shows off their patriotism for the whole world to see. This is the time of year when we celebrate our Independence Day. Over the years this holiday has become more and more about family, friends, and fireworks. That in essence is what makes this country great, having the freedom to celebrate in almost any way we desire. From grilling out to fireworks displays this is truly a special time of year.
Now with the legalization of Fireworks in Omaha, there seems to be firework stands almost on every corner in the city. While some of those firework stands are off shoots from the big boys in Missouri, we do need to support our local economy. So before you head out to grab your fireworks this year, do a little bit of research and find a stand that helps out the Omaha community. Many of the stands in the city are set up to help a charity or to help support a local school’s athletic program. We just ask that you be kind and help support our local community by purchasing your fireworks at a charitable tent instead of one with ties to Missouri.
There is always some special events going on around the 4th of July here in Omaha and this year is no different. Check out the list below to find some of the best events in town.
