Obviously, many people are cautious about returning to large crowds and gatherings - fireworks always bring a crowd.  

Rather than spending your hard earned money on fireworks that may or may not blow off your fingers, and may or may not result in a $1,000 fine if you set them off illegally - why not leave it to the professionals? 

We came across this list of local fireworks displays still happening in Southeast Wisconsin.  With some planning - you can probably scout a location where you can be away from the large crowds - and still enjoy your 4th of July tradition.
