Boom! Where to Catch Independence Day Fireworks

Independence Day is the perfect time of the year to visit Buffalo. With summer’s warmth in town for the Fourth, you can enjoy all the very best that Buffalo has to offer. During the day, explore our revitalized waterfront with the whole family, relax on one of many local beaches or grab a frosty pint at our homegrown breweries.

Once the sun sets, the skies of Erie county will be bursting with the rocket’s red glare. Here’s a list of every town, village and venue hosting their own fireworks displays this weekend!

Fourth of July Fireworks Show at Highmark Stadium, July 4 – 8:00pm at Highmark Stadium
A prequel to the fireworks that will take place on the field in the upcoming Bills season, Highmark Stadium may host the biggest pyrotechnics display this Fourth of July. Guests are invited to park in the Fieldhouse lot, along with lots 1,3, and 4 beginning at 8pm – giving you more than enough time to set up lawn chairs and blankets. A $5 fee, benefitting the Buffalo Bills Foundation, will be collected for each vehicle. Fireworks will begin at sundown (approximately 9pm).
