Virtual Fireworks Shows | Watch 4th of July Fireworks from Home

For years, we’ve been sharing the best places to see fireworks in Indy. COVID-19 has created a situation where many 4th of July celebrations were canceled or adapted to meet social distancing needs. In addition, many in-person fireworks shows have been turned into virtual fireworks shows, allowing for people from all over the world to see famous fireworks displays.

Independence Day cannot be canceled, but for your safety, many shows have. This year, many will tune in to live streaming or television broadcasts, just like we do on New Year’s Eve.
