...Or Skip the Shows and Do Your Own Fireworks
Light your own fireworks from July 1-7 or July 21-24 until 11 PM except for the 4th and 24th, which allows until midnight. Some areas in Utah Valley are restricted firework areas where no fireworks are allowed. To find out where these spots are in your town, visit the Fire Marshal's website. In addition, some fireworks not sold in Utah may be illegal here, so be sure to buy local.
Another option for viewing fireworks is to go to a high place, overlooking the entire valley and watch all the fireworks from afar. Some of the best spots to do this are Squaw Peak Lookout Point and Y Mountain. Check out our hike list for more places you can go!
